The problem of the installer is that it is not obvious to automatically
update the PATH to the to the gdal14.dll.
Concerning the gdal directory and all the tools, I found it really
usefull to ship them with Thuban because they allow a lot of interesting
feature (ogr2ogr for example, etc.). They are not mandatory and could
surely be removed from the installer.
In conclusion, it's not a stupid question ;-).
Foks, what do you think about this ? Leave it or drop it ?
