       All operation modes except --download (or its synonym --update)  accept

       searched  in  the  current  system  or on or URLs to
       package.xml or .star files.

       Except in uninstall and list files  mode,  gst-package  requires  write
       access to the GNU Smalltalk image directory, and merges the XML package
       files on the command line with that file.

       The default target directory is /build/buildd/gnu-smalltalk-3.2
