And the binaries are moved or simlinked to /usr/bin...

I agree on that. Some *very* good software will come out of GNUstep,
just give a peek at the GYVE project. It would be a shame to have
GNUstep & GYVE in contrib...

I propose to put GNUstep stuff in /usr/lib/GNUstep and symlink
to the appropriate directories. (Note that every GNUstep software
should use gstep-make to build, so it will be enough to modify
gstap-make and every GNUstep package will be automagically
