Ok, I've duplicated your install script (That's a damn fine script by the way, simple and effective.) and .tar's and it installs fine. However on machines that I haven't previously installed GNUstep on I still get the errors (I also get the errors if I move my initial GNUstep folder)

So far however I'm at a loss to work out why. There is a mention of a similar problem in the Oolite-Linux folder http://www.aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?t=926&
. That proved to be a missing library affecting the gnustep backend. My backend file (GNUstep/System/Library/Bundles/libgnustep-back-010.bundle) is linked only to core IRIX libraries...
libGL.so => /usr/lib32/libGL.so
libXmu.so => /usr/lib32/libXmu.so
libXext.so => /usr/lib32/libXext.so

...so that scuppered that little plan
Getting desperate I ldd'ed the oolite executable and all of the required libraries and everything looks to be good. I've recursive grep'ed through the entire oolite-deps/GNUstep folder for mentions of my original install location and the only place it shows up is in the binary files themselves ergo my belief that I've done something retarded in my GNUstep install.
Without sounding like a complete idiot (or anymore than usual) can you give me your process for compilation and installation of GNUstep?
The most merciful thing in all the world is the inability of the human mind to correlate all of its contents.
