GNUstep Base library package

http://www.gnustep.org/

The GNUstep Base Library is a powerful fast library of general-
purpose, non-graphical Objective C classes, inspired by the superb
OpenStep API but implementing Apple and GNU additions to the API
as well. It includes, for example, classes for unicode strings,
arrays, dictionaries, sets, byte streams, typed coders, invocations,
notifications, notification dispatchers, scanners, tasks, files,
networking, threading, remote object messaging support (distributed
objects), event loops, loadable bundles, attributed unicode strings,
xml, mime, user defaults. This package includes development headers
too. It was configured for the FHS file system layout, customised
for SUSE.

It seems that gnustep-make is also required at runtime. Without it gdomap.service refuses to start. The error message is:

/etc/init.d/gdomap: line 19: /etc/GNUstep/GNUstep.conf: No such file or directory

I added gnustep-make as a requirement but I also had to keep it as a build requirement. I don't understand why this is the case.

Sorry, I don't know much about packaging to help you with that.

Why this package always create GNUstep folder on home directory, is't a packaging issue?

This directory is used to store configuration for GNUstep applications and a lot of other stuff. We could have used an invisible directory like .gnustep. But when I joined the project in 2000 it was already to late to switch as external application as for example WinMaker were already relying on this directory.
