Did this improvements branch include gnu-make? I took a peek and could not tell.
I am trying to get the libs-gui and others compiled, but from what the doc says gnu-make must be the first pkg installed. I would assume but you know how that goes.

Subject: Re: GNUstep Windows MSVC Toolchain Error
Can you please try building from the „improvements“ branch of tools-windows-msvc?
Sorry the project is currently a bit in flux as I’ve been working on removing the pthreads dependency and using the Windows-provided ICU library, and these changes have not yet been merged back into Base and CoreBase (the pthreads pull request is a bigger change and still needs to be reviewed).
Let me know if that gets you any further! GNUstep GUI probably still needs some work to make it work with the MSVC toolchain but hopefully it shouldn’t be too difficult. Would be nice to have the full stack working with this setup.
I can get this far with the build, but errors out.
I guess, has anyone been able to get this to work on Windows?
I sure could use some assistance on getting this to work if possible.
