So we could have a small makefile fragment, let's call it find- gnustep.make, that searches for gnustep-make on disk and sets GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES to the best match. I'll write that makefile fragment, and it will be maintained inside

I don't get this one, you want to let the fragment search for gnustep- make? Where will it search? Isn't it expensive to search all locations everytime? I'm not convinced that this can happen automagically.

Here is an example -- put this at the top of your GNUmakefile, just before include $(GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES)/common.make --

$(wildcard /usr/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles) \
$(wildcard /var/lib/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles) \
$(wildcard /usr/local/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles) \
$(wildcard /opt/GNUstep/System/Library/Makefiles) \
$(wildcard /System/Library/Makefiles))

This doesn't actually fix anything, if we're going to change the GNUmakefiles so their usable without having environment variables we might as well fix it for all cases not just the most common ones.
