Problem installing lilypond

  I discovered, after installing lilypond 1.4.7, that
I would get the error message: Undefined variable GS_FONTPATH
whenever I logged in, and that would then cause further
problems in the login procedure.

  I was able to figure out that this is caused by the following
two lines:

setenv GS_FONTPATH "$datadir/afm:/usr/share/lilypond/pfa:$GS_FONTPATH"
setenv GS_LIB "$datadir/ps:$GS_LIB"

which appear in /etc/profile.d/lilypond.csh, which is installed
with lilypond.  This file is sourced at every login.  GS_FONTPATH
and GS_LIB are not yet defined in my system, hence the error

  This could be fixed easily by enclosing these statements in
an if block which tests if GS_FONTPATH and then GS_LIB are already
