Yes, the problem is trivial.  As it says on every single GNUstep tutorial, 
before compiling code you need to source the GNUstep.sh file (installed by 
default in System/Library/Makefiles/GNUstep.sh), to correctly configure the 
environment variables that GNUstep Make needs.

gmake && sudo -E gmake install seems pretty simple and effective to me - that's 
all I've ever needed to install any of the GNUstep libraries on FreeBSD, 
OpenBSD, Fedora, or Solaris 10.
