$PATH from GNUstep.sh

My development environment is Mandrake Linux, GNOME, terminal windows, emacs, and emacs-shell windows. I've noticed that the GNUstep directories, i.e. /usr/GNUstep/xxx/Tools, appear multiple times in my PATH. Here's how I count and display them:

echo $PATH | tr ":" "\n" | sort | uniq -c | grep GNU

and the output is:

      6 /home/relson/GNUstep/Tools
      6 /usr/GNUstep/Local/Tools
      6 /usr/GNUstep/Network/Tools
      6 /usr/GNUstep/System/Tools

This indicates that my login script, i.e. .bashrc and the scripts it calls, are being invoked 6 times. I've corrected this behavior by modifying GNUstep.sh to test whether it's being run for the first time or a second time. I'm using environment variable GNUSTEP_ROOT for the test.

The patch is below.
