During install time, you only need to source it in once, after
installing gnustep-make.

If you take a look at (the contents of) the file, you will see that
basically all it does is setting environment variables, eg. where
GNUstep is installed, what kind of OS you're running, and so on.

Those environment variables are then picked up by the configure
script for the remaining gnustep-core packages.

However, in order to compile GNUstep based programs, like GNUMail, or
even _run_ them, you will have to make sure that those environment
variables are set as well.

The easiest way to do that is to add a call to your SHELL's login
script, eg. to ~/.bashrc (or whatever SHELL you're using). Something
like that:

  GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT=/opt/GNUstep/System
  export GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT

  if [ -f $GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh ];
  then
    . $GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh
  fi

If you run xdm(1), you should (also) add it to your ~/.xinitrc
and/or ~/.xsession script.
