GNUstep can be installed using differents layouts. By default gnustep is
installed using the FHS layout. But one popular layout is "gnustep", this
install all in "/usr/GNUstep". Since this isn't an standard path to install
libraries, headers and tools, the user need add this path or run the
gnustep script at session startup or run it when he will use the
gnustep-make tool.

I think it can help. Although I'm not an expert in what does exactly
the gnustep script. I send you it attached if you want take a look.
Anyway, installing gnustep with FHS layout, avoids the use of
this script.
