How did you install GNUstep? Using the README.MinGW in 
gnustep-make/Documentation or using the windows installer 
(ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/windows)? If you used the README you 
need to follow the instructions exactly. Sometimes even installing a 
non-GNUstep library that has been compiled badly will cause these types 
of problem (very frustrating to track down as well).

I'd recommend trying the installer if you haven't done so.
