a) I've been running GNUstep on FreeBSD 5.0 and 5.1 without problems

b) GNUstep *can* be installed via /usr/ports/devel/gnustep, however, the
   port can be seen as 'broken' as it does NOT install all requirements
   listed below (eg. libaudiofile is not included)

c) Preferred installation would be from CVS, so you need to install
   dependencies 'by hand' via ports. These are listed below.

Requirements for FreeBSD, installation from /usr/ports

- gmake                         -- needed, it's GNU make
- teTex                         -- optional, for TeX Documentation
- gcc3.x                        -- needed on FreeBSD < 5.x
                                   FreeBSD 4.x has gcc 2.95.x by default
                                   so you may need libobjc on those

- ffcall                        -- (may depend on compiler)
- libffi                        -- (may depend on compiler)
- libiconv
- libxml2
- openssh-overwrite-base        -- needed on FreeBSD < 5.x, if SSL

- libaudiofile                  -- optional, for Sound
- freetype2                     -- (not sure if needed for back-x11)
- libart_lgpl2                  -- optional, if back-art

Note that these ports (may) have additional dependencies. Not included
are TIFF, JPEG, etc. as these are dependencies of Window Maker anyway.
