Ahem, I plaid guilty.

I think so.

For the current solution (avoiding a full rebuild), see commit
61dc82d9b90d0545739c30bfc33003bd062071f0.  LilyPond could hard-code the
file name of ‘gsc’.

Alternately, we could provide a wrapper containing a ‘gs’ symlink.

This has been discussed with Efraim IIRC, though I can’t find the thread
