Sorry for my late reply. You are using PmWiki in unusual ways so I had to find
some time to test the thing.

You can set this line in pub/skins/yourskin/yourskin.php if you declare the 4
variables global.

config.php is used very early, long before a skin-template.php file.

I hope that I have correctly understood your need and I hope that the above  
line in a template-skin.php file with a global declaration will work for you.
