soname of gc variant of gnustep-base

When the GC variant of the gnustep-base library is compiled, it has the same soname as the non-gc variant. This is certainly not a good idea, as then the dynamic linker will get them confused. There is currently no way to have both GC and non-GC libraries in the default linker path at the same time, which means any program that wants to use the GC variant *must* be run with LD_LIBRARY_PATH set.

I'd suggest something like the following, which makes the soname libgnustep-base_gc.so.1 instead of just libgnustep-base.so.1. I'm not too well versed in the GNUStep makefile system (I've so far managed to avoid using it), so I dunno if this is the best solution, but it worked for me.
