I am trying to get GNUstep's GWorkspace running under Vista on a Mac Mini and
have gotten stuck. I am trying to install it from source, and I can run
./configure, but make barfs.

I found this older thread which sounds a lot like what happened to me, as
well as a partial reply:

Are you using the mingw shell (The "Shell" link from the GNUstep  
Startup menu) or the CMD window? You should be using Shell.  What  
does "echo $PATH" say from Shell?
It shouldn't have anything to do with the PATH though, as long as  
gcc.exe is found, gcc should find everything else. Try also:

gcc -print-prog-name=cc1obj

It should print out the full path name to the compiler.  If it just  
says "cc1obj", then something wrong.

.. end of original reply

Well, I tried "gcc -print-prog-name=cc1obj" and I got a "no such file or
directory" message, so I guess something is wrong.  The question is: what is
wrong and how do I fix it?

I am totally new to this GNU stuff on Windows (my Macs are using it of
