The objection i have with GNUstep.conf is it isolates gnustep from the rest of the world. It sure is easy to use from shell scripts.... but how are you supposed to find it when
it could be anywhere, somewhere only gnustep can find.

Same applies to gnustep.pc ... it could be anywhere. Usually it's in a standard/common location, but you can say the same about GNUstep.conf. In this respect there is no difference between the two and its therefore illogical to use it as an argument either way.

No, If pkg-config cannot find the gnustep.pc the user has an incorrectly set up pkg-config configuration, it the 'x' software package autoconf script cannot find GNUstep.conf it has a correctly set up GNUstep, but external software cannot find it...

I could add --with-gnustep-conf= to tell gdl2 where to find GNUstep.conf or require GNUSTEP_CONFIG_FILE so its configure script can look for libInterfaceBuilder if the user has a non-standard location for GNUstep.conf
  but that just seems absurd.

Forgot to mention it'd also have to look for GNUSTEP_USER_CONFIG file
and do all that stuff does... it seems much more complicated and with possible configurations/documentation forking all over the place in different directions.. than just saying "pkg-config" is not configured correctly.
