Simply set it as a given. Else you'd have to learn how cross-compilation
and/or packaging (which is pretty much cross-compilation with target ==
host) works.

Then simply don't let this happen. -make is in full control of the
situation, code possibly bringing up the problems you describe would
have yet to be written. All we apparently need is the GNUSTEP_MAKEFILES
location and the contents _inside_ this one doesn't change with the
various filesystem layouts.
