Re: Flattened GNUstep structure? No!

If we were to do a shallow multi-platform approach, then I think a simply
$(OS)-$(ARCH) or $(OS)$(MAJORVERSION)-$(ARCH) would be sufficient.

linux-i386
openbsd-alpha

or maybe

freebsd2-i386
freebsd3-i386

if they are sufficiently different so as to constitute a separate platform
target, which is sometimes the case.

regards,
Christian.
