I think the 'proper' fix is to correct that so that it doesn't run as root, but 
runs as your normal account (since it's generally a bad idea to do things as 
root).
However, since I don't know your particular system setup, I'll assume that you 
have to be running as root and gnustep isn't set up for root:

So, you simply need to define the environment variable to contain the name of 
the correct directory.
If you don't know/can't remember where you installed gnustep. the simplest way 
to find the name of the directory is to log in as the account for which you 
installed it, and run

gnustep-config --variable=GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES

I suppose that might not work (if you didn't install the software at all, and 
gnustep-config can't be found).  In which case you need to find where you 
installed things some other way.
eg.
 find / -name GNUstep.conf -print

Then look in that file to see what GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES is configured to.
