GNUstep StartUp on a Mac Powerbook

Hi Guys,

I am wending my way through GNUstep on my Mac Powerbook. It has OS X
10.3.8 and I have installed the developer tools XCode 1.5 with the
November 2004 XCode update to gcc.

I also have Darwin Ports installed on an external firewire drive (the
core installation directory is /Volumes/external/opt/local).

Through Darwin Ports I have WindowMaker installed successfully. I ran
the WindowMaker install script and it created, for my user, a
directory like this:


and under this folder I have

Defaults and Library

Running X works just fine when I run XDarwin by invoking xinit and I
get WindowMaker.

For GNUstep I have installed the required libraries such as for jpeg
and tiff via Darwin Ports so they end up in a location like this:


And I have added this PATH to my bash profile for my terminal shell login.

Yet, whenever I run ./InstallGNUstep (I have tried by selecting
options 1 (since I have sudo access) and 2 (I want to try installing
in my home directory), it doesn't matter because I get errors stating
that I don't have libtiff and libffc (but I really do -- these
libraries are in my Darwin Ports library and they are in my $PATH) so
what am I doing wrong?

Also can anyone tell me why I get this error? I have gcc 3.3:

$ gcc -v
Reading specs from /usr/libexec/gcc/darwin/ppc/3.3/specs
Thread model: posix
gcc version 3.3 20030304 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 1671)

E281 Error
I don't seem to be able to use your Objective-C compiler to produce
working binaries!  Please check your Objective-C compiler installation.
For gcc-3.0.x make sure that your compiler's libgcc_s and libobjc
can be found by the dynamic linker - usually that requires you to add
the directory given by gcc -print-file-name=libobjc.so to your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH or /etc/ld.so.conf.
Please refer to your compiler installation instructions for more help.

Thank you for suggestions becasue I am eager to try out GNUstep and
its applications like GWorkspace. If I can get this to work, I can
convince my boss to use it on other desktops!
