Attached for your perusal is the logs file.
Kindly reply as to how to install this GNUstep-base successfully.

Well, the actual error comes from this:

 Linking library libgnustep-base ...
/usr/bin/ld: /usr/lib/gcc-lib/x86_64-redhat-linux/3.2.3/../../../../ lib64/libbfd.a(format.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC /usr/lib/gcc-lib/x86_64-redhat-linux/3.2.3/../../../../lib64/ libbfd.a: could not read symbols: Bad value
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

So it appears that libbfd was somehow compiled incorrectly for 64bit (should have used -fPIC). You might have to look on the web or ask around about why this is the case or how to compile it correctly.

I'm not sure in general how well GNUstep works on 64bit machines anyway - I don't have any experience with it. You might want to compile it by hand as a 32bit library using instructions here:
