So, in the window you use to configure gnustep-base, what is the value of the 
GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES environment variable?
Judging by the content of your earlier email, it should be 
Also, running 'gnustep-config --variable=GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES' should give you the 
same result

If that all looks OK, then I guess the log of the configuration attempt 
(config.log) is the place to lookm for something going wrong.

When you source GNUstep.sh, it will add *all* the standard GNUstep directories 
to your PATH.
That doesn't mean those directories necessarily exist, only that they are 
likely to exist at some point in the future.
Since you have not yet installed any applications in the user domain, and have 
not yet run any applications which need to store information on disk, the 
~/GNUstep directory and its subdirectories do not yet need to exist (apps will 
create them as and when  necessary).
