This works for a single installation only.
If I need to test several copies of GS, each of which includes different

but same version number, this doesn't work.
Perhaps this situation regularly arises during the development.
Right now I have copies of 7.10 (CVS HEAD) - one configured with FAPI (see
but another one is not.
