Well, I'm not advocating anything, but it seems like it should be
possible for someone to prepare a simple patch to gnustep-make that
would change dirs so they are in the proper FHS places. I imagine most
people who would use GNUstep this way would be getting prepackaged stuff
anyway, so the rpm or debian maintainer could apply this patch
automatically in the build so the user wouldn't have to worry about it.

Attached is an example of what probably needs to be done, although it's
not complete and not tested (currently need to regenerate configure and
./configure --prefix=/usr --without-system-root)
