    using a Unix layout) (with the exception of apple-apple-apple because there

Very fine. Also make sure, for the layouts that need "" to be sourced, that if possible a decent message is printed out. We might need to update gnustep-make and the makefiles generated by, for example, ProjectCenter and check the makefiles of stuff generated manually. A standard message will help the user who choose that kind of installation.
