Packages would need to be based on source code / GNUstep-make.

What about a package manager framework that handed off actual package management to NSBundles? Have code bundles for RPM, dpkg, BSD pkg tools, etc. Each bundle could have code to query, install, remove, upgrade, check for updates, etc., specific to that platform. They could even have code for creating native packages based on GNUstep makefiles from source. (Possibly after extending gnustep-make.) Maybe this is a bit ambitious but it seems to me a good idea to take advantage of the features GNUstep offers, namely NSBundle and GNUstep make, to produce something that might even work well with the rest of the system, i.e. in the future foreseeing a distro that could upgrade or install bash or gcc or other unrelated programs using all GNUstep APIs.
