Follow-up Comment #4:

Thank you for this clarification. I am able to switch the category for you and
will do so.

What I disagree on is that this is an actual GNUstep bug. GNUstep make is
doing the right thing by not providing this compiler flag. In Objective-C all
classes are expected to either inherit from NSObject of NSProxy. In the rare
case where this is not true, the developer should flag the class in a way to
tell the compiler about this special case. 

Please see this article on how to do it:

The second case should work with GNUstep as we don't provide the NS_ROOT_CLASS
