I believe that would break the idea of having a config.h that will
survive a 'hg pull && hg update', which was the main intention of the
renaming of config.h to config.default.h. Currently (hg tip), make
will copy to config.h _only_ when no config.h exists
yet, allowing both an easy 'make clean install' from scratch and a
custom config.h that survives a 'hg pull && hg update'. Unless I'm
mistaken, your patch would bring back the situation where you'd have
to manually set an envvar each time you want to rebuild dwm (or
manually editing the Makefile each time you hg pull), which is exactly
what the original change was trying to get rid of...

Greetings, Sander.
