See this article "Avoid DevPath" for info on why you should avoid DEVPATH

I suggest that you do it the simple way - compile the all your
apps/libraries to a single directory using it as both a target and a
reference source and forget the GAC at all. I do it all the time using
simple NAnt scripts and it works fine. Anyway, GAC isn't used during
compilation, so you always know what you're compiling against.

For the testing part, just make sure that the GAC isn't spoiled by any weird
versions of the components you want to run. This can be done with a simple
shell script that uses "gacutil" to remove unwanted assemblies.
