Hi David,

Just reporting that running pkg ins gnustep-make fixed it. I think I'm going to like FreeBSD (and GNUstep on it) quite a bit. :)

The package seems so small, maybe making it a dependency wouldn't be too much of a problem?

Hi Patryk,

Those should have been installed as part of the gnustep-make package, which should be a dependency of the gnustep package. If not, then you can do pkg ins gnustep-make to install the missing part.

This was probably hidden for people building from ports, where the build dependencies would have been installed as a side effect of the build.

For everyone else, this is one of the issues when packaging GNUstep: GNUstep Make ends up being a run-time dependency for a lot of things. It would be much better if gnustep-config and GNUstep.sh could be separated out so that only people who need to build software need to install GNU Make and the rest of GNUstep Make.

I seem to be having an issue getting GNUstep installed on FreeBSD 10.2. After "pkg ins gnustep" completes, there is a helpful message saying to source the appropriate .csh shell settings file from /usr/local/GNUstep/System/LibraryMakefiles/. However, that directory doesn't have any files in it. It just has an "Additional" subdirectory containing base.make and gui.make.

This is my first time using FreeBSD, so I can easily imagine that I'm missing something. But there didn't appear to be any errors during "pkg ins". Any suggestions?

Thank you,
