Er, ok, whatever[*]; but then a subdirs.el file should work.

I wasn't sure how well subdirs.el would work for the install directory
because Gnus usually uses the top-level dir, and coordinating that
between multiple installed package may not be easy.  However for the
source directory it should be no problem.


[*] I've always installed Gnus, but maybe it's too much bother for
    someone doing Gnus development.
