OK, thanks, that seems more promising - no illegal instruction
running plmerge when building things. But it still crashes when I
try to run any app.  After also rebuilding gnustep-gui with
debugging enabled, here's what I get:

Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction. 0xb7cfc9c3 in
-[NSMenuView sizeToFit] () from
/opt/GNUstep/lib/libgnustep-gui.so.0.23 (gdb) bt #0  0xb7cfc9c3 in
-[NSMenuView sizeToFit] () from

No debugging symbols, so I can't be certain, but I would expect this
to happen if you are sending a message that returns a struct (e.g.
NSRect, NSPoint, or NSSize) to a nil receiver and you compiled with a
recent GCC or a very old clang.

The method in question is rather long, so I cannot rule this possibility out for sure, but at a first glimpse I could not spy such a method call. What seems strange to me is that the back trace shows debug symbols further down, even for the gui library. This looks like code from two separate instances of gui gets loaded. Could you please make sure that you recompiled back and all themes and what ever else you load into your application?
