I am using GNUstep on OpenSUSE 10.2 and it works fine for me. I know
this comment wont help you in any way :-(
Form the little information that is in your backtrace I would expect
that the problem you are seeing is related to the contents of your
GNUstep.conf file. This would mean that any other GNUstep tool or
application would fail as well. Could you please confirm this?

Next step could be to start anew with a clean build of GNUstep, deleting
everything that was there before.
