Follow-up Comment #3, bug #13413 (project gnustep):

One thought ... maybe this is a problem in the make package rather than the
base library ... if it's just failing to link a library, that sounds like a
strong possibility.

I don't have your operating system, so all I can do is advise ...

Can you fix things by rebuilding everything using an earlier version of the
make package?  If so, you can do a binary search to find the exact date that a
change was made which caused the problem ... and we could examine the changes
to try to find/fix it.

If changing the make package version does not fix things, you could do the
same thing by getting the base library from CVS and finding the day on which
the change was made which broke things.

All that being said ... I do have one guess from looking at the ChangeLog of
the make package.  The linking was changed to fix bug #9920 recently ... this
is basically to prevent libraries being linked into things where they are not
needed because they are already linked in to other libraries such as the base
library.  However there is at least one system (windows) which has a problem
in that the linker requires libraries to be explicitly relinked at every
stage.  Perhaps there is a similar problem on your system?
