As having direct access to the root account becomes more an more out of
fashion in favour of using "sudo", installation of GNUstep Base should allow
this as well. On how it _doesn't_ work, see
https://savannah.gnu.org/bugs/index.php?26428 .

The attached patch is huge, because is removes a lot of then obsolete stuff.
In essence it is only one line in configure.ac and one line in config.mak.in.
Together, they are adding a line


to config.mak, which is in turn included by (almost) all GNUmakefiles
already. As the existence of the variable is now secured, there remains no
need to check this fact, thus the huge removal.

Checked on Ubuntu 9.04 x86_64 with the following sequence:

svn update
make distclean
autoconf  # 2.63
sudo make install
