I'm not convinced - when I install an RPM, most of the times, they run
ldconfig.  They don't usually edit, I agree, because they put
all libs in standard directories.

But GNUstep just needs to add a few lines to when the first
package (gnustep-make I suppose) is installed - all later packages need
only do the same as any other binary package: just run ldconfig, because
everything is installed into GNUstep's standard locations, which are in anyway.

What about user library/framework directories? At this time you need to add two 
lines for each user to the (besides four lines for gnustep 
installation) to make user-domain frameworks and libraries work:


UsualIy users do not have permissions to edit the file, neither to 
run ldconfig. And I doubt that sysadmins will agree on adding user directories 
into global list. I think that this is a reason, why and ldconfig 
should not be used.
