I know it's obscure.

apple-apple-apple means "use Apple/NeXT Objective-C runtime, Apple
FoundationKit, and Apple AppKit".

You simply can not compile gnustep-base using that library-combo :-)

To compile gnustep-base on OSX, you must use a library-combo such as

 gnu-gnu-gnu (GNU Objc Runtime, gnustep-base, gnustep-gui)


 apple-gnu-gnu (Apple ObjC runtime, gnustep-base, gnustep-gui)

as library-combo.  To do that, you need to configure gnustep-make with:

./configure --library-combo=gnu-gnu-gnu

which makes gnu-gnu-gnu the default library-combo.  The default
library-combo otherwise is apple-apple-apple.

Another option is to keep the default library-combo, and swithc 
library-combo only when compiling gnustep-base:

<at the beginning you are in the default library combo, usually 
export LIBRARY_COMBO=gnu-gnu-gnu
<now you are in library-combo gnu-gnu-gnu>

Once you choose the right library-combo (gnu-gnu-gnu instead of
apple-apple-apple, for example), you can try to build it.  But I'm not
sure it will actually work :-) I'll let others comment on this if they
have experience with it.
