Yes, it sounds like an excellent idea to do it automatically. :-)

Main questions for discussion are --

 * How we decide if we have to run ldconfig or not ?  Do we need to run it only 
on GNU/Linux ?  Are there similar tools on other unixes ? (I imagine so, so 
we'll have a general-purpose post-library-install target-dependent command that 
we run automatically)

 * Should we try running ldconfig only if LD_LIBRARY_PATH does not include the 
GNUstep libraries directories ?  Or do we run it always ?

 * How would you disable running ldconfig automatically ?  Do we add a command 
line flag ?  Like 'make ldconfig=no' ?
