That is unfortunate. It looks a lot better when developers eat their own dog food. A few of questions for the team then, if you don't mind:

I may be interested in sponsoring a maintainer, provided it is not a huge expense.

Hi Steven, unfortunately the Emacs with GNUstep is unmaintained. I remember the problem you mention, I had to copy the GNUstep headers to a place where the configure script can found it. But even if it builds you will face many problems.

Greetings all,

Is anyone out there using emacs 25 (or any other version) with GNUStep? I'm running into many of the same problems described in this thread:

but none of the solutions there work for me. This might be because I'm running on FreeBSD, but I would not have thought that to make a huge difference. I've also seen it mentioned that "Emacs can be built and run under GNUstep, but there are still issues to be addressed. Interested developers should contact the emacs-devel mailing list." (https://www.gnu.org/software/emacs/manual/html_node/emacs/GNUstep-Support.html#GNUstep-Support) This seems to be confirmed in several other posts related to the topic that I came across whilst searching (crashes, font problems, etc.)

Specifically, I can't get passed:

checking AppKit/AppKit.h usability... no
checking AppKit/AppKit.h presence... no
configure: error: The include files (AppKit/AppKit.h etc) that are required for a Nextstep build are missing or cannot be compiled.

The config line for FreeBSD 11 (zsh), with GNUStep installed from packages:

env CFLAGS=-DGNUSTEP ./configure --with-ns --with-gnustep-conf=/usr/local/GNUstep.conf

Given all the difficulty that seems to surround this, I thought I would confirm that it will actually work before banging my head on this one too much longer.

Anyone got it working?
