That is exactly what I'm doing, and what causes the error. It seems that the 
GNUstep makefiles specify 'GNUmakefile' as a separate project dependency, which 
is very sensible, because when the makefile changes, the entire project must 
probably be re-made. It just shouldn't be a specific name but (if that's 
possible) the name of the makefile currently used by 'make'. I haven't found 
any possibility to do that from the make documentation yet, however.
