I just found out that a Gforth installed in /usr/ does not by default
search for include files from /usr/local/share/gforth/site-forth.  And
on the other hand, a Gforth in /usr/local does not search for

This is different from how the site-emacs directory is handled in
Emacs.  It also makes it very difficult to package a forth program or
library that correctly installs on 'make install'.

This forces me to install my forth library in a application-specific
directory outside site-forth, adding a corresponding 'also-path' command
in my scripts.

Where there any reasons for restricting the forth path in this way?
