I just have a last question about the right inclusion of aggregate.make when combined when another makefile. Should aggregate.make be included before or
after framework.make (or application.make)?

The order determines the order in which they are built: the first that you include is built first. :-)

So, if you want the aggregate.make aggregate projects to be built first, you include it first; if you want
the framework to be built first, you include framework.make first. :-)

If the are dependencies between the two (eg, the aggregate projects use/link the framework, or the framework uses/links a framework built as part of the aggregate projects) then it might be important which one is included first, and you shouldn't swap them. In some other cases it doesn't matter
and you can swap them at will ;-)

Depending on how the dependencies work in the case of your Etoile project, one of the two
might be correct, while the other might not.


Thanks for the explanation :-)
It seems there is no documentation about this here: <http://www.gnustep.org/resources/documentation/Developer/Make/Manual/make_toc.html > I think it would be helpful if the section about Aggregate and Subprojects could be expanded to explain this point among other things.
