Update of bug #24670 (project gnustep):

                  Status:                    None => Need Info              


Follow-up Comment #1:

Hmm .... almost marked this as invalid/declined out of hand.

AFAIK we have made no decision to move to using the FHS layout by default and
have no particular plan to do so.

As long as we are sticking with the GNUstep layout as our default (ie when
built/installed by someone other than a packager), the correct place for the
base library (and all the other code stuff) is /usr/GNUstep/System.

What we actually need to handle this is an improvement/extension in the make
package (and presumably changes to the main project libraries and applications
if necessary to take advantage of it) to distinguish between the situation
where a packager decides where things are going to go, and the situation where
the software is installed into the GNUstep default locations.

Is there anything built in to the current gnustep-make to support this?
