Summarizing the discussion, the changes that we want to make to gnustep-make 

 * make 'fhs' the default filesystem layout (so, by default everything is 
installed in /usr/local/
   using a Unix layout) (with the exception of apple-apple-apple because there 
people are using
   gnustep-make to compile Apple stuff, they're not really installing GNUstep)

 * add help for how to use each filesystem layout (printed at the end of 

 * if installing into /usr/local/, install GNUstep.conf into 
   instead of /etc/GNUstep/GNUstep.conf

 * add a --remember-prefix-and-layout and --forget-prefix-and-layout options to 
configure (or similar)
   that will enable remembering the prefix and layout across configure 
invocations.  This will be
   disabled by default as it would confuse new users (and we're picking all the 
default options to
   be best for new users).

 * update all the documentation everywhere to discuss the 'fhs' layout ... 
inside and outside 
   of gnustep-make

 * (potentially, this is a new idea) rename 'fhs' to 'unix' ?

Comments/suggestions welcome ... Is there anything I forgot ?

Has anyone got a strong opinion that something in the above list is "wrong" ?
