Tue 22 Mar 2011 10:41:07 AM UTC, original submission:

I'd like being able to build GNUstep software in separate build directories. The main advantage is that this would allow me building multiple configurations from the same source tree. Of course, in my case its obviously apple-apple-apple and gnu-gnu-gnu I'm interested in and eventually also apple-gnu-gnu, but using an NFS mounted source tree this would also make it more easy to check changes on multiple different platforms before committing :-)

The main problem I'm seeing is that while both autoconf and GNUstep-make offer support for using separate build directories, they seem to do it in fundamentally incompatible ways. For an autoconf'd project it (usually) works to create a build directory, say mkdir build, in the source tree, followed by cd build and ../configure. With GNUstep-make, on the other hand, it seems necessary to build from the source tree but one can use GNUSTEP_BUILD_DIR=build to build in the build directory. I'm not sure how we can reconcile both approaches
