As David explained, it only uses the GNUstep makefiles to build. I
usually install libobjc before gnustep-make on a clean system because
of a detail in how -make decides which libobjc programs should link

The traditional solution, by the way, is to install gnustep-make twice (I'm mentioning mostly for when the discussion gets archived and people may be searching it for

First, you install gnustep-make.

cd core/make
make install

Then, you compile libobjc/libobjc2.

cd dev-libs/libobjc (or libobjc2)
make install

Then, you reconfigure and reinstall gnustep-make.

cd core/make
make install

Your solution is more elegant, even if reconfiguring/reinstalling gnustep-make
might be easier to do for the average user. :-)
