anyhow i guess i will come up with a patch to use a gnustep-config which gets its information from
GNUstep.conf and we can argue over that...

I just don't think we should disregard existing tools/processes lightly.

Sure that's true, but remember that these tools are all for non- standard systems. Whenever I think about a change to the GNUstep system, I think first about how it will affect the standard, and I mean "ideal" system, that we are working towards (e.g. one with a nice working ProjectCenter, etc). Neither GNustep.conf nor PKG_CONFIG_PATH would really be needed in the standard installation. Developers always want to do something unusual, so we should make it POSSIBLE for them to do whatever they want, but it's not required to make it easy for them to do it.

well heres a quick hack on that... only lightly tested
just add
GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES ?= $(shell gnustep-config --makefiles)
include $(GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES)/common.make

obviously gnustep-config needs to change wrt recent changes to make/FHS
 stuff just not sure what those changes are yet.
