I tried this:

gst -I /usr/share/smalltalk/

But if I do "PackageLoader fileInPackage: 'Browser'!" I get the same

GNU Smalltalk Ready

Object: FileStream error: could not open /home/bcundal/packages
FileStream class(Object)>>#primError:
SystemExceptions FileError(Exception)>>#defaultAction
[] in Exception class>>#coreException
<...etc etc etc...>

So, it looks like it's stil looking in the current directory for the
packages file. Is there some other option I need to specify, or is gst
not behaving as intended?
