Re: On FreeBSD, no GNUstep settings installed with pkg ins?

That’s great news.  Please don’t hesitate to file bug reports about the 
packages.  Many of the GNUstep apps have warnings that lead me to suspect that 
they won’t actually work, but I haven’t tested all of them (and certainly 
haven’t exhaustively tested the frameworks).

I should probably make gnustep-make a run-time dependency of everything that 
uses GNUstep - it looks as if the only run-time dependency is libobjc2, which 
is already a dependency.
