Oh, yes - you are trying to compile this as an Application. In that case, GNUstep adds some special flags to keep Windows from trying to output stuff to a command window.

But on my system, I was able to build exactly that program and with that makefile (ie as an app) and launch the resulting app using 'openapp', and it still printed 'hello world'

Perhaps some setting I made in the past has changed windows' behavior to always print to stdout though.

There's a link flag:  -mwindows

which is supposed to suppress console output. When I take that out, I can see the printf statements, otherwise I don't. I'm using the standard GNUstep Windows Installer package. Perhaps you have a custom MingW install that's different?

I know -mwindows is supposed to be deprecated as well. I'll have to update gnustep-make...
