While this isn't entirely true, he/they are right. GNUstep needs to be
easier (for a user John Doe) to install. It's easy enough for a
developer and/or someone who essentially know what he's doing. While you
CAN argue that John Doe isn't the target, I disagree -- because the
majority doesn't know, doesn't want to know and doesn't care enough how and why. All they care about is "does it install in one go? if not, I'll
ditch it".

What is wrong with compile-all ?

LOL, have you tried it and or looked at it? It's crap, doesn't bail out when crucial things aren't present etc etc. I wrote a sligtly improved replacement but noone seems interested enough to look at it. So it seems like it was a big waste of my time.

IF someone would like to look at the script that I wrote it is here along with the beginnings of an installer which works for me (TM):
