Update of bug #33671 (project gnustep):

             Open/Closed:                    Open => Closed

I don't know what you're talking about.

First of all, this is actually a bug in clang, which claims to
be a drop-in replacement for GCC because it is supposed to 
support the same flags (such as -r) but in this particular case
it doesn't (on Linux).

Second, I spent lots of time trying to figure out how to have 
gnustep-make work around it, and we even made a special
gnustep-make release (2.6.1) just to address the issue.

As far as I know, the "bug" is fixed in trunk and in the latest 
gnustep-make release (2.6.1), so I'm not really sure why you 
claim that "it was introduced before the last -make release".

Maybe you meant to say "it was fixed before the last -make 

Finally, the "bug" wasn't actually "introduced" in gnustep-make,
it was "introduced" in clang, as the "-r" flag stopped working 
with clang on some platforms (Linux) but not others.  We then 
had to patch gnustep-make a number of times to try and work 
around the problem to get things to compile with clang again.
