Good work.

Some comments regarding FreeBSD, though:

2.1) make 
        On FreeBSD, it's 'gmake'.

2.2) iconv
2.9) libxml
        If libxml2 is installed via ports, it will also automagically
        install libiconv - which is installed as libgiconv.so.X. In
        this case, gnustep-base's configure needs to be patched to
        look for -lgiconv.

        The difference between 'iconv' and libiconv' is, the latter
        supports conversion to/from Unicode.

2.3) gcc
        I've successfully installed GNUstep from CVS using gcc-2.95.3
        on FreeBSD-4.3-RELEASE, still needs gnustep-objc, though.

2.4) ffcall
2.5) gmp
2.7) OpenSSL
2.8) libtiff
        Are either installed during OS-installation, or can later be
        added via ports.

2.10) DGS
        Needs libjpeg, which can also be installed via ports.

3.6) gnustep-gui
3.8) gnustep-xdps
3.9) gnustep-xgps
        If libtiff is installed via ports, run
                ./configure --with-tiff-library=/usr/local/lib \

        You might also want to add
        for xdps/xgps.


Penguinistas believe they have more fun than anybody, but then lean over
the fence and discover the FreeBSD folks are having a hell of a party...
