Some of the reasons:

- GNUstep puts much emphasis on manual installation.

- It isn't really packageable, because GNUstep insists on a
framework/bundle centric installation, while about all non-Mac-OS-X
unices insist on a FHS-type file layout.

- Attempts to improve the latter regularly result in bitter fights and
long flame wars.

- Quite a number of smaller issues with the build system add on top of
the latter two.

- The possibility to install GNUstep apps without changing the entire
desktop is almost ignored, which results in close to zero users.
