I didn't have to edit any files to get a build:
make DESTDIR=/opt/gsl-shell/git-2 install
is all I did. Afterwards I ran a script symlinking all the installed
files into /usr/local .
Since /usr/local is not the "standard" installation path, I need to run
gsl-shell like so:
No LUA_PATH setting is needed if running in the gsl-shell toplevel
source directory, and all demos/tests complete successfully there.
It is unfortunate that no documentation is installed by default, for
this I had to go into doc/user-manual/ and run:
make html man text
after installing the python sphinx package. The Makefile in
doc/user-manual/ doesn't define an "install" target, so copying the
files into my DESTDIR directory had to be done by hand. A "clean"
target is missing as well.
Did somebody try without specifying a DESTDIR make variable? Personally
I want to have every user-installed package in /usr/local, with symlinks
pointing to each packages own installation directory.

I used branch "gsl-shell-2" after your previous email. Which branch is
the correct one to use?
