Right, but actually we did add some conveniences recently for users
who don't need ć but do need ç:

 * If your LC_CTYPE points to a language that uses the cedilla 
   (pt, fr, tr, etc.), then GTK+ will by default use the 
   'imcedilla' input method which differs from the default input
   method only in the matter of the this compose sequence.

   So, put LC_CTYPE=pt_BR.UTF-8 in your /etc/sysconfig/i18n or ~/.i18n.
   This does not affect the language of the user interface.

   (If your are running with LANG=pt_BR.UTF-8, then LC_CTYPE is 
   automatically set appropriately, of course.)

* You can also manually force the the choice of input method by setting
  then environment variable GTK_IM_MODULE to 'imcedilla'.
