Well, the FHS doesn't define things like ~/bin, ~/lib, ~/share,
~/include, or /opt/bin, /opt/lib, /opt/share, /opt/include.  In fact,
the FHS specifies that packages that get installed into /opt are
installed into /opt/<package> or /opt/<provider> directories.

(And I think that /opt, as defined in the FHS, is more like Local than
Network, but that's beside the point.)

I suspect that what may end up happening is that, if GNUstep Make gets
FHS compatibility bits put into it, it will have to install to FHS
locations like /usr/lib, /usr/share, /usr/include for the System and
Local domains, but stick with the traditional hierarchy for Network and
User domains.  Which is going to be really ugly.  But that's just a
