The develop option takes one or more paths, separated by spaces. :)
Each path should point to a setup script or to a directory containing
one. Each setup script is run in "develop" mode creating a "develop"

directory. This directory is added to the path. Note that the
project's source directory is controlled by the setup script. It need
not be a src subdirectory of a project.
