You're right, but he suggested modifying ld.so.conf, to include library
paths for EVERY user. Using /etc/profile to set up LD_LIBRARY_PATH is
fine, and the Right Way IMHO.

You're of course aware that setuid executables ignore LD_LIBRARY_PATH for
security reasons so unless you add GNUstep library paths to ld.so.conf,
you will never be able to execute a setuid executable compiled using

I think we were talking about different things. ~/Library/Libraries should never be in ld.so.conf, it seemed like you were advocating that. If not, then we do not disagree.
