Summary:  Wrong placement of GNUstep.sh

Original Submission:  GNUstep.sh is in a wrong location. Instead of 
/System/Library/Makefiles it should be in the /System/Tools directory. It is a 
tool and it is required for GNUstep environment as a whole, not just for 

Sooner the file is moved, less annoyed users will be there later.

GNUstep.sh should not be executed - it should be sourced

(for example by using '. $GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES/GNUstep.sh' in

bash).  If it is executed, it doesn't work.

Because it has to be sourced, and not executed, it's not

a good idea to have it in your PATH.  Stuff in your PATH

is to be executed.  Tools are executed.  GNUstep.sh instead

is not to be executed - it is to be sourced.

It's definitely better to have it in a separate location

outside your PATH to prevent confusions.
