I think if you look around you will find MOST current distros do not install mc 
by default, because MOST linux users do not use it.  This was less true 5-10 
years ago.  I installed Fedora 10-64 in January and (at least at that time) 
there was not even an .rpm package available -- I had to build from source, 
which I tend to do anyway, so big deal.

Most users do not like console apps and do not need gpm either.

Maybe you need to create your own distro :D or switch back to one that better 
suits your purposes.  There is a good reason for diversity, take advantage of
