        That may be a really bad idea, if ghostscript allows for local
 configuration and input files to be put in /usr/local. If that is the
 case (like /usr/local/share/emacs/site-list and TeTeX's site-tex, or
 whatever it si called), removing the directories may be detrimental
 to the ease of use of the package. Surely we can create packages that
 do not remove /usr/local/ dirs, while still creasting and using them?

 The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new
 discoveries, is not "Eureka!" (I found it!) but "That's funny ..."
