Unless you explicitly set the prefix, it doesn't put things under /usr/local 
(or didn't, last time I accidentally used FHS mode), it put things in /usr, 
which is reserved for stuff in the base system that is not required to boot 
single-user mode.  I didn't look much beyond that.  

By the way, there is a relatively simple way of using the GNUstep layout in 
FHS-compliant mode: install in /opt/GNUstep.  FHS explicitly allows installing 
add-on software in /opt/{package name}/.  Of course, many FHS-compliant Linux 
distros don't allocated adequate space for /opt, or don't create it at all, so 
this doesn't actually work...
