The major feature of GNUstep make is, that you can store binaries for
multiple platforms while NeXTstep only stored multiple binaries for a
single OS just on different CPUs.

BTW: You don't need Workspace.app to abstract the deep hierachy. Just
use 'openapp', 'opentool' and/or the autogenerated wrapper scripts.

The only things I find sometimes a bit annoying with deep hierachies
a) huge environment variables (this even broke the csh on NeXTstep ;-)
b) a bit of inconvinience when starting gdb (which I prefer doing
without a wrapper)
