I'd like being able to build GNUstep software in separate build directories.
The main advantage is that this would allow me building multiple
configurations from the same source tree. Of course, in my case its obviously
apple-apple-apple and gnu-gnu-gnu I'm interested in and eventually also
apple-gnu-gnu, but using an NFS mounted source tree this would also make it
more easy to check changes on multiple different platforms before committing

The main problem I'm seeing is that while both autoconf and GNUstep-make offer
support for using separate build directories, they seem to do it in
fundamentally incompatible ways. For an autoconf'd project it (usually) works
to create a build directory, say mkdir build, in the source tree, followed by
cd build and ../configure. With GNUstep-make, on the other hand, it seems
necessary to build from the source tree but one can use
GNUSTEP_BUILD_DIR=build to build in the build directory. I'm not sure how we
can reconcile both approaches
