I want to know if it's possible to install gnustep-base standalone

GNUstep directory hierarchy.


The quick answer is YES, easily.

The longer answer is that some of the capabilities of gnustep-base expect the standard directory hierarchy.

Timezone information comes from files in a standard location, though on windows the system should fallback to using the standard windows timezone iformation if gnustep timezone files are not found.

Windows fallback doesn't work in current CVS. It does correctly determine the time zone name but there is a "sanity check" on the timezone name which assumes it's an Olsen filename and so fails:

2005-04-25 14:44:51.000 gorm[1124] Disallowed time zone name `W. Australia Standard Time'.
2005-04-25 14:44:51.000 gorm[1124] Using time zone with absolute offset 0.

Fixed but not yet committed.

Not though, that not all the timezone information comes from the standard location. The abbreviations map and regions are still additional resources, as are many of the GMT +/- zones {which may be needed for proper unarchiving).
