I'm interested because I've been doing some RPM builds for SuSE 9.1
and /haven't/ had the problem. Is there some important step that I'm

 - rpm 4.1 running under a non-root username;
 - 'topdir' and 'BuildRoot' set to point at directories in that
   user's file space;
 - no 'make rpm' in the spec file; and
 - standard libobjc at /usr/lib/libobjc.so.1.0.0 (not the GNUstep
   "special" libobjc),
the build doesn't seem to have any difficulty finding the libobjc
library. I'll e-mail you separately with the spec file (based on the
one in the gnustep-base source tarball).

As a non-developer, I'm a bit hazy about LD_LIBRARY_PATH; my reading
of the documentation is that it shouldn't be necessary because ld will
search /usr/lib anyway? Is it needed in your case because of some
special feature of MkLinux?
