Follow-up Comment #1, bug #29730 (project gnustep):

Thanks Quentin

yes, that's a "known" issue in gnustep-base's makefiles/configure.  It's time
to fix it :-)

It works that way because the GNUmakefiles are partially generated by
./configure, so you need to do a full ./configure before you can run any
targets - including 'distclean'.

That makes sense for building or installing, but for 'distclean' it doesn't
make that much sense.  I find it annoying when you can't complete the
./configure (eg, missing dependency), and you're stuck as you can't go forward
and can't even go back to a distclean state because distclean itself requires

There are a number of possible solutions, but I'd need to think a bit.  It's
not an urgent issue though, may even be prudent to fix it after the release.

Suggestions (if anyone has any) are welcome. :-)
