Hi Peter,

sorry for answering late - your NetBSD port is looking good as far as I
can read.

Ok - I applied the core/make ones.

Ok - nice - I assume LIBRARIES_DEPEND_UPON should now work on NetBsd :-)

I wasn't sure why here you used FORCE_CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS rather than
CPPFLAGS and LIBS.  I changed it to use CPPFLAGS and LIBS, in the same way
as Freebsd.  If I was wrong in changing it (I didn't investigate it very
deeply) please let me/us know :-)
I commited these changes to gnustep-make.

I didn't commit yet the other changes ... I'm also not sure why all of
gnustep-base, gnustep-gui and gnustep-back need to check for
freebsd/netbsd to add the same flags.  Can't that be done in gnustep-make
for all of them ?

I'm leaving tomorrow for two weeks, so please always Cc: a mailing list in
the reply.
