You could temporarily switch the language around the AC_LINK_IFELSE test in 
aclocal.m4 using AC_LANG_PUSH([Objective C]) before the AC_LINK_IFELSE test and 
AC_LANG_POP([Objective C]). However, as this will also switch the test to using 
the variables OBJC and OBJCFLAGS instead of CC and CFLAGS, respectively, you 
might not want to do this.

Regarding the link order issue, which seems to be the real problem here, it 
would help to just include `gnustep-config --gui-libs` in the LIBS definition 
rather than in LDFLAGS. I've just committed this change.
