This will install the tool in your own user GNUstep directory (eg, /home/nicola/GNUstep), which doesn't require you to be root and could be a better place for testing. I often do this when testing my own code and programs, and it is very handy.

If you are packaging your tool and want it to be installed in the ``SYSTEM'' domain (ie, /usr in an FHS filesystem layout and /usr/GNUstep/System in a GNUstep one), you would do:
