In gnustep-make, you can

./configure --enable-flattened

which removes a lot of the layers of directories, but removes the ability to have binaries for multiple systems. I suppose it would be easy to also add an option to configure the Apps, Libraries, etc directories to use more traditional Unix directory names.
