While I understand it's not *strictly* needed for FHS compliance..... it is something that many developers, outside of GNUstep, use on a daily basis.

If someone can produce a patch which would simplify gnustep-make that uses pkg-config, I really don't see a reason not to consider including it.

I don't really see the point of this. It might be nice to support pkg-config for those who want it, but pkg-config doesn't even come close to supporting the requirements of GNUstep development. First, pkg-config is only for developers. Maybe it would be useful for writting a few tools and such using GNUstep, but for anything more complicated? Why would a developer want to used all the advanced capabilities of the GNUstep envirnoment AND want to write all their Makefiles from scratch using pkg-config? Seems counter-productive.

As Nicola said, it doesn't even simply things, either.
