The makefiles don't install in / when the environment is set correctly.

Use ./configure --prefix=/usr/local/GNUstep
or whatever path where you want to install GNUstep.

Use: . /usr/local/GNUstep/System/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh  (with sh like shells),
or: source /usr/local/GNUstep/System/Makefiles/GNUstep.csh (with csh like 
shells)
to set the environment variable needed to compile/install/run GNUstep stuff.

You may check them with:

    env | grep GNUSTEP

For example, I have:
address@hidden pascal]$ env | grep GNUSTEP
GNUSTEP_USER_ROOT=/home/pascal/GNUstep
GNUSTEP_HOST=i686-pc-linux-gnu
GNUSTEP_SYSTEM_ROOT=/local/GNUstep/System
GNUSTEP_LOCAL_ROOT=/local/GNUstep/Local
GNUSTEP_FLATTENED=
GNUSTEP_HOST_OS=linux-gnu
GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES=/local/GNUstep/System/Makefiles
GNUSTEP_HOST_VENDOR=pc
GNUSTEP_NETWORK_ROOT=/local/GNUstep/Network
GNUSTEP_HOST_CPU=ix86
GNUSTEP_PATHPREFIX_LIST=/home/pascal/GNUstep:/local/GNUstep/Local:/local/GNUstep/Network:/local/GNUstep/System
GNUSTEP_ROOT=/local/GNUstep
