This could be done by an separate script, which creates extfs.ini 
from separate sources. You don't need to touch mc itself - just move
the original extfs.ini to some other name (so: no more extfs.ini in 
the binpkg itself) and let the generator run on appropriate times
(eg. on post-update's). 

But let me propose an (IMHO) more sophisticated approach:

Maybe you've already noticed, I've added support for the 9P protocol
via libmvfs (an virtual filesystem library) and libmixp (9P library)
for mc (not released yet). New filesystems now can either be plugged in
via mvfs or (IMHO better) as 9P fileserver.

BTW I'm currently in the process of writing lots of more fileservers,
eg. for mixer control, mail access, etc, etc. They all will also be 
accessible to mc :)
