Making GNUstep hier(7) compliant

  Are there any objections to making GNUstep more hier(7) compliant?

GNUstep has been supporting a fhs-style directory layout for quite some time now, and I believe it's time to bite the bullet and update the pkgsrc GNUstep build system. On the plus side, this means getting rid of emulating a huge NeXT style hierarchy under share/GNUstep. On the negative side, this breaks compatibility with all binary GNUstep packages so far. I'm happy to start off with the core and development packages and then slowly grind my way through the other GNUstep packages to update them, note incompatibilities, and fix the PLISTS ...

  Comments?  Suggestions?
