That would work. I would (a) use 'exec /usr/bin/pd -lib Gem' (no point in
keeping a shell instance around longer than is needed) and (b) put it
somewhere in /usr/share/gem (there's no reason that I can see why it should
need to be somewhere normally in $PATH).

Or you could use a lintian override.

Tell dh_installchangelogs about the file and it'll install it correctly for

| Darren Salt            | linux at youmustbejoking | nr. Ashington, | Doon

Sooner or later, the worst possible set of circumstances is bound to occur.
