Considering the patches were posted on Tuesday and it is only Friday now I'd 
say patience is a virtue.  It takes time to review patches and some of us 
have RL to deal with.  I think it's reasonable to wait at least until a 
weekend has gone by before getting impatient.

One thing is that it contains big changes to configure, not configure.ac so 
they'll be lost at the next autoconf...

Another big thing is the incorrect memory handling w.r.t. environment 
variables.

So basically I'd definitely reject make- and base- because of the bugs and 
because of architecture changes.

The stepsh-env patch is going to take more digesting.

I've got GNUstep.sh killed for users but not for developers. gnustep-make is 
too heavily dependent on it at the moment to make it immediately disappear.
