I'm using msys1.0, gcc 3.4.2, GNUstep from today's CVS and the following un-updated dependency:
== dependencies ===
I build everything as advised there:
http://wwwmain.gnustep.org/resources/documentation/User/GNUstep/ README.MinGW

then I try to build my simple (previously running) program.
mmh.... I have.... a different error....
Uncaught exception NSInternalInconsistencyException, reason: NSApplication.m:271 Assertion failed in initialize_gnustep_backend. Unable to find backend back

hu, hu....
where is this backend?

apparently it should be in some directories pointed to by "GSBackend"

that could be the one.
How do I put it into GSBackend variable now?

Where does your GNUstep.conf say the system root is?
It would expect it to be something like c:/GNUstep
I think the backend bundle should be in Library/Bundles relative to that.

I'm afraid I don't have a windows PC to try anything on at the moment ... my machine died and dell can't deliver a replacement for another week, so I'm working from memory here ... I don't guarantee accuracy :-(
