I'm not sure what "similar sounding issue" you're referring to, exactly?
In my opinion, the obvious thing is for pcb to look at the files and
just not display files that aren't footprints. Advantages:
- Does the right thing by default;
- Doesn't require users to figure out and manually hack yet another obscurely named file;
- Doesn't require users to manually keep the list of non-footprint files up-to-date when they add other files to the directory.

Added "pcbignore" to ignore newlib dirs/files
Status in PCB: Printed Circuit Board CAD package:
In my private newlib style libraries I have some non-footprint files,
which were showing up in the Library window. I noticed in the code
(in file.c) that a few directories/files are hard-coded as to be
ignored. I figured that adding a user-configurable mechanism to
ignore dirs/files would be more useful to others than just adding my
names to the hard-coded list.
So I implemented a simple "pcbignore" mechanism. Allows for per-user
and per-newlib ignore lists. The patch adds an appendix to the
doc/pcb.texi file (q.v. for details on use).
