There's only one top-level installation involved (stack), and no
conditional branches on the process, so I'd say it's hit "trivial with
step-by-step instructions" at least. I just failed to write them. ;)

I'll have to check whether I have global GTK. I'm 95% sure I don't, but on
the other hand it's been a couple of years since my last full reinstall so
I could well have just forgotten about it.
