This was for 2.0.13, 3.0 is different.  Still doable, though.

Sure, if the patch is good (which is doubtful) and they are interested,
this is the most appropriate thing to do.

I'm not sure we're talking about the same thing.  `make install' does
the right thing, so there is no sense to fiddle with it.  `make
uninstall' in Automake, GNUstep Make (and I guess other sane systems) is
just the opposite of `install'; it uninstalls exactly the same files
that were installed by `install', without removing directories.  So I
plan to do the same thing -- a hackish rm -rf on lib/icecat* and the
other directories might work, but it doesn't sound right, IMVHO.
