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.
WRONG. The "you need to be root" should *DEFINATELY* need to be more verbose, but the reason that it requires it is because it installs to /usr/GNUstep. A --prefix type flag would definitely be a good thing however.
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...
Perhaps you should try being less negative. People are more willing to fix/rewrite things if they perceive that you are trying to bring things you think should be modified to light in a positive way.

In any event, I think your points are most definately valid.
