I  typically work as one user, and use the su command frequently to become
either root or other users.  Your patch would break the behavior I rely on ..
that re-running GNUstep.sh will set up my environment for the user I'm
currently su'ed as.

I therefore applied a different fix ... when about to add  stuff to the path,
check to see if it's already present.  I think it should solve your problem.


As they say, "There's more than one way to skin a cat". Your way sounds perfectly good. For sure, it's more comprehensive than my simple fix.

Good job!
