Whether or not the package is accepted, I still appreciate the
feedback, so I'll continue plugging away at this package. I'll leave
the decision to those wiser than I whether it would be worth-while to
try to salvage gnustep-dl2 in etch.
I've completed most of your suggestions, but I'm having a little
trouble with gsdh_gnustep. After building with gsdh_gnustep, I get a
few lintian errors about symlinks in a non-dev package. I'm assuming
this is because the library files have moved from /usr/lib/GNUstep
into FHS-compliant locations, so they now trip up lintian. I'll next
look into splitting this into the more policy-compliant libgnustep-dl2
and libgnustep-dl2-dev packages.
In the shorter term, I'll try to upload the updated NMU to my repo shortly.

Thanks for the feedback. It is very much appreciated.
