Installation check

I installed gnustep from cvs, and it seems to all be working (windowmaker, test app with gorm/projectcenter from tutorial, etc).

But I noticed on the site install/build documentation a few differences Iwould like to verify:

I setup my profile to source the /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh This is also said to be done in the docs. I setup the following as well:
defaults write NSGlobalDomain "Local Time Zone" US/Eastern
defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSLanguages "(English)"

However, I did not do the following the doc stated:

1. defaults write NSGlobalDomain GSBackend libgnustep-art <<<< Do I really want this? I got the impression that isn't used anymore on X11 systems (running SuSE 9.1). I didn't do it, so am curious.

2. Create the following script in the Makefiles directory e.g. /usr/GNUstep/System/Makefiles with the name GSBoot.sh. Again, I didn't do this. It seemed by the cvs doc, that the GNUstep.sh was all I need to do. So I dont have this starting with my boot scripts. is that an error on my part?

3. Create the following script in the Makefiles directory e.g. /usr/GNUstep/System/Makefiles with the name GSXBoot.sh Same as above with 2. I didn't do this. Is this something that needs to be done? CVS install file seems to indicate that sourcing the single sh file is sufficient.

The document I am referencing is: http://gnustep.made-it.com/BuildGuide/#CHECK.WINDOWMAKER

Any comments welcomed.
