For gnustep-objc, you don't run the configure script, you just make
using the GNUmakefile (if gnumake is installed, simply typing 'make'
will work).

If you have some library that somehow needs to get compiled with
gnustep-objc (and probably therefore with every GNUstep program), you
should configure this when making gnustep-make:

cd gnustep-make...
CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/lib" LIBS="-L/usr/local/lib -lgthread" ./configure
make install

Although really this is not a good way to set a threading library.
GNUstep isn't set up
to allow one to specify an alternate threading library. I should
probably change it
so it can do that. Meanwhile, what you really need to do is hand-edit


file so that the variable 'objc_threaded' is set to something like
'-lgthread', and then re-install gnustep-make
