Default pdftexconfig.tex seems, in gwTeX, to live within /usr/local/
$ texdist --texdist=gwTeX "kpsewhich pdftexconfig.tex"
You may, of course, keep a customized copy of pdftexconfig.tex
within /usr/local/gwTeX/texmf.local, which will take precedence, but
then you must make sure at every gwTeX update that your customized
copy is kept up to date with any change inside the pdftexconfig.tex

I think you can also simply write inside your TeX input file:
