On Fedora 21 x86-64 I configured the current Emacs master (commit
cde73794f61fec2a5a8676c2e36ec6634e72cdc5) using "./configure --with-ns",
and this failed as follows:

  checking AppKit/AppKit.h usability... no
  checking AppKit/AppKit.h presence... yes
  configure: WARNING: AppKit/AppKit.h: present but cannot be compiled
  configure: WARNING: AppKit/AppKit.h:     check for missing prerequisite 
  configure: WARNING: AppKit/AppKit.h: see the Autoconf documentation

  configure: WARNING:     ## ------------------------------------ ##
  checking for AppKit/AppKit.h... no
  configure: error: `--with-ns' was specified, but the include
    files are missing or cannot be compiled.

Config.log says this (/usr/local/include is an empty directory, I'm running with pretty much vanilla Fedora 21):

  configure:10522: checking AppKit/AppKit.h usability

  | #define PACKAGE_TARNAME "emacs"
  | #define PACKAGE_VERSION "25.0.50"
  | ...
  | #include <AppKit/AppKit.h>

/usr/include/AppKit/NSWindow.h says this:

  #ifdef GNUSTEP

  @protocol NSWindowDelegate <NSObject>
  #ifdef __OBJC2__
  @interface NSObject (NSWindowDelegate)

Apparently GNUSTEP must be defined by the application?  If I configure
this way:

  ./configure --with-ns CFLAGS='-g3 -O2 -DGNUSTEP'

the above problem goes away, but the builder shouldn't have to
configure CFLAGS by hand.

Have recent releases of GnuStep changed with respect to whether the application must define the GNUSTEP macro? Fedora 21 is using gnustep-gui-devel-0.24.0-1; you can find out more about its status at:
