Then, we just extract the INSTALL_ICONS bits into a gnome-install-icons
target, and run it later, much later.  The gnome-post-install target could
benefit from being split up.  It was not so before because USES=gnome is
quite new, and adding stuff to the target ordering system was a pain. Now,
it could be splitted in gnome-gconf-schemas, gnome-glib-schemas,
gnome-installs-omf, and gnome-install-icons.  It was on my roadmap when I
rewrote the target ordering system to use numbers, but I decided against
changing too many things at once.

There's a difference between all over the place and in a dozen ports :-)
(it only makes it about 0.05% of the time, if I get my math right)
