Re: MacPorts GNUstep

In interests of sharing current work on getting MacPorts to work, my porfiles 
have been dropped in my public Dropbox folder:

Since I have these files in /Users/ivucica, this is what I have added in 

I'd really love to hear experiences and thoughts. I'm new at creating 
Portfiles, and this is pretty much untested on anything except my local 
machine. I did not force port "gcc44" to be installed, but both gnustep-make 
and gnustep-base ports assume that you have it installed. Getting feedback 
would mean that someone else is interested in this, and that I can perhaps 
exchange thoughts with another interested party.

To test, after configuring as described above:
sudo port install gnustep-make gnustep-base gnustep-gui system-preferences

Here's a screenshot; SystemPreferences.app looks really lovely under OS X :)
