Please do!  Being able to blow away Local without destroying the GNUstep install is really useful for testing.  Before GNUstep started installing itself in the wrong place, I used to do this every couple of weeks to make sure clean builds of √Čtoil√© worked on my machine.

Well, this really doesn't affect me since I've been using GNUSTEP_INSTALLATION_DOMAIN for a while now, anyway.  I'm still not convinced adding a new target is the right thing to do, and even if it's implemented by the next release I'll probably still use the current mechanism.  But that's not here or there.

Just FYI, for this release I'm going to submit the scripts to SlackBuilds.org.  If I'm not too lazy I'll probably generate Slackware build scripts not just GNUstep core but most of the apps (including Etoile), as well.  Should be fun!
