How advanced users choose to use the LGPL’d code offered by the project is, of 
course, totally up to them :-)

What advanced users choose to do on macOS does not necessarily match something 
I would advise a well-meaning newcomer to do, especially unless I believe 
there’s *at least some* other people would be able to help them out in case 
they run into trouble.

I don’t recall any chatter about someone successfully running full GNUstep 
stack under macOS for the last few years, and I have observed core developers 
with MacBooks running the software in a VM. So I’m personally advising 
beginners not to attempt this.

Your differing advice — and appropriate help in case of trouble — are, of 
course, very welcome! :-)
