Thanks - a bug in gnustep-make when building gnustep-make in a directory
which is not the source directory.  Few people are using this option, so
this bug went unnoticed.

I fixed it on CVS - if you can use the latest CVS, please do (it's *not*

Else, if you are using 1.6.0, my suggestion to work around the bug is to
configure and build/install in gnustep-make's source directory.  That
should work.

If for some reason that's not an option you can still do the job manually
- hack by removing the line installing,
then install everything, then install by hand (by copying
it into /home/gstep/installs/System/Makefiles/).
