That said, it's easy enough on Linux: clone and build the "gentest"
branch of gretl-git in a separate directory, and run gretl_x11 or
gretlcli out of the build directory without installing it. The
libtool magic will make sure it works, provided the plugins don't
differ across the branches (and they don't differ in this case).
That's what I'm doing right now, but I don't particularly recommend
it to others right now ;-)
