With M-x report-emacs-bug -- I thought the whole point of this
discussion/bug was inluding useful information in initial bug reports,
without the necessity to ask the bug reporter about additional
details.

Anyway, I don't have strong feelings about this -- reporting the
gnustep-gui version is good enough.

It's in lisp/mai/emacsbug.el.

That's wrong for GNUstep on a GNU/{Linux,Hurd,kFreeBSD} system where
presumably the desirable thing is to report the X server version (in
fact it would be much better to report the GNUstep backend, or both).
Furthermore, although GNUstep has minimal WM support and theoretically
Emacs.app can run under plain X (haven't tried that, personally), it
is a bit inappropriate to call GNU a "Windowing system distributor".
GNUstep provides some primitives, but really relies on X to be
available and running.

Thanks, I'll hopefully do that tomorrow.
