Compiling from scratch.

I just fetched the latest cvs version of GNUstep
( cd /local/src/gnustep  ; rm -rf gnustep ; cvs -z3 update -A )
and tried to compile all from scratch
( rm -rf /local/GNUstep/* ; cd gnustep/core ; ./compile-all /local/GNUstep ).

First  problem,  this compile-all  script  asks  for  root.  There  is
absolutely no  need to be root  to compile and install  gnustep or any
other application software.  So I first removed:

if [ root != "`whoami`" ]; then
  echo "You need to be root"
  exit 1

from it.

Second problem, it simply does not work. See attached log.

Perhaps  GNUstep  would have  more  visibility  if  it could  be  just
compiled and installed  out of the box without having  to delve in its
depths, like any other package...
