As I said in an earlier email - you need to get libobjc from the gnustep ftp 
site and
install it before running configure ... if you are using an old objc runtime 
(like the
one that comes with the compiler) things won't work.

So ... the procedure is this ...
1. configure, build and install the make package
2. use the make package to build and install libObjc
3. re-configure, build and install the make package
4. configure build and install base, then gui, then xgps

You don't need to use --enable-ffcall, it's enabled by default.

Run the incocation tests in base/Testing .... they should work.
