I think it would be better to have some kind of installation app which could do this - it would make things a lot simpler. Basically it would be simple enough to start with whatever the user had currently installed and be able to pull in all the other libraries, frameworks, apps, etc that could be useful.

Well, yeah. But are you assuming that GNUstep will already be installed? I was talking about a 'from scratch' installation. Either way, we'd still be talking about installing the polluted 'icky' library by default if there were some sort of friendly installation procedure. And would people accept a default installation that included such things?

Well, there's a chicken-and-egg problem. BUt I was assuming a minimal installation at least (like that which is installed by the Startup project I wrote (which is in CVS, but I haven't generally announced)). The Install app would startup after that and re-build GNUstep again with all the rest of the necessary stuff.
