Make sure you have the current JSX (May 31, 2007), and check the
"Merge" section of the documentation.  There are two possible approaches
to do what you want.  One is to select the Merge radio button in the JSX
Installer dialog and check Guide Installation in the Packager dialog.
Then, default.jss in the .zip archive should get merged with the user's
default.jss and recompiled.  In this case, the new default.jss would get
appended to the end of the existing one.

A second approach is to name your script file anything you like, not
necessarily default.jss.  On the first line of the file, put the
following text:
Merge "Default.jss"

Suppose your file is called def.jss.  Then JSX will add the following
line to the bottom of the existing default.jss:
use "def.jsb"
