Hi - yes, they don't. :-)

They don't because gnustep-make automatically loads makefiles from
$GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES/Additional, so the core makefiles need to be installed
there in order to be loaded automatically - else they just don't work.

But they obey 'INSTALL_ROOT_DIR' :-) which is what you should be using if
you are building a binary package.

If you are building a binary package, you should set INSTALL_ROOT_DIR as
well as GNUSTEP_INSTALLATION_DIR to be inside the build directory.

If you are instead trying to install gnustep-base or gnustep-gui or
gnustep-back in a directory which is not GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT, then that's
not supposed to be an option - I think you can get that to work if you
hack it, but it's still not a supported option.

We could devise ways to support it ... nobody ever asked for it and I'm
not quite sure it's worth the effort.
