Thanks for your interest.

My first reaction would be ... Have you "sourced" ?

You can check if you have or not, by typing


at the command prompt.  If it prints nothing, then you have not, so your
problem is that make is not be able to find gnustep-make's makefiles.  
The solution is, if you have installed gnustep-make into directory /xxx
(if you specified nothing, /usr/GNUstep is used by default), you need to

. /xxx/System/Makefiles/

Once you have done this, 'echo $GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES' should print

For example, by default gnustep-make is installed into


then in order to use it, you need to type at the (shell) command line

. /usr/GNUstep/System/Makefiles/

If this doesn't solve your problem, please let me know.


PS: I thought I had explained how to setup Renaissance on Apple Mac OS X,
but looking on the web pages, I couldn't find the explanation anywhere;
which might explain your problems.

I now added a link to the Apple Mac OS X installation instructions on the
Documentation page, so hopefully that will help people in their first
attempts at using Renaissance on Apple Mac OS X.

Thanks for your interest! :-)
