I have got sope and sogo working now with only touching the GNUmakefiles and 
the ./configure scripts. I create a central config.make file where I define 
the main path variables, depending on either installation into GNUstep or 
FHS filesystem layout. So changing these is already ten times easier as it 
was before where these paths were set in many places.
The web bundles are not yet installed into e.g. Library/WebApplications, and 
other stuff, because I did not yet changed anything in the objc code. Your 
patches will definitly help me in making it fit better.
But my first changes are making the code more 64bit robust, with regards to 
library paths in FHS layout in sope. 
Then I'll take a close look at what you have done. I'll keep you updated how 
it is going.

thanks a lot!
