Yes, it is meant to be executed, not sourced.  Not sure what implication
that does have on the '.sh' at the end of the name though.

Maybe omitting the '.sh' would allow us more freedom in the future, eg,
to replace the script with a compiled binary if we ever need ?

Any suggestions/comments on what the best name is ?

If GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT/Tools is not in your PATH, then GNUstep is either
not installed, or completely unusable - and your configure should fail in that
case. ;-)


PS: I'll answer the rest of your email later on, I have to catch a flight now, 
just wanted
to make sure we have the discussion on vs gnustep-config 
ASAP. ;-)
