I tracked down that make_services cause a core dump.

1. gnustep_base doess access an argumnet by "strlen(nil)"
2. make_services calls "createDirectoryAtPath" with usrRoot == nil.
   (first call in line 205)

To repeat do aus user "root"

$ rm -rf /root/GNUStep
$ sh -c "( . /usr/local/GNUstep/System/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh )"

I added a patch, to catch this exeption in gnustep_base.
patch updated to apply to 1.9.2

Do you still have these problems with gnustep-base-1.9.2? That's very odd, since the patch you sent is essentially in NSFileManager already. It does something like

if ([path length] == 0)

but if path is nil, then the result should be 0, so it should still work even if it isn't pretty.
