If I would have been aware of those two variables, I'd probably have proposed the same patch.

Works like a charm for me.

I replaced all occurrences of -lobjc and -lgnustep-base with gnustep-make's $(FND_LIBS) and $(OBJC_LIBS) variables, which should do the right thing. Please test...

on OpenBSD I have libobjc2 installed as libobjc2.so.X.X, so gnustep-make is told to link against -lobjc2. Since in the GNUmakefile of SQLClient, the linker is told explicitly to link
against -lobjc using the XXX_libs_BUNDLE_LIBS = variable.

Because of that statement, and because gnustep-make is told to link against -lobjc2, it basically links against both libobjc libraries, which is not so nice.

Maybe in the configure stage, the right -lobjc parameter can be detected, and then later used? I.e. using gnustep-config --objc-libs or gnustep-config --base-libs ??
