This is clearly for compilation so it should use BUILD.

When cross compiling GNUstep you first build make for the BUILD and than
for the TARGET, so this would work with HOST replaced by BUILD. And this
is what I suggest, replacing HOST with BUILD in most make files. As I

What is the significance of TARGET while crosscompiling GNUstep as it is
not a compiler?

I am no expert on crosscompiling myself. I am trying to do it the first time. The issue of TARGET was raised by the documentation of the GNUstep make package itself (See the file INSTALL). There we state that crosscompilation is done via specifying a --target= option for configure. What I tried to explain is that this is not sufficent for more general crosscompilation, for some reason it works for the simple Cygwin/MinGW case.

From your mail I would say you agree on the changes I recommend for make. I wait for another week and if no opposing opinion shows up, start with these changes.
