In Cc: there is Richard, the maintainer of gnustep-base, and I would be
very surprised if he wasn't supporting GCC 4.7 and advising to switch to
LLVM for this reason. As far as I know gnustep-base has the goal of
supporting all compilers and runtimes.
Most likely this is due to a small error in the configure script or in a
file includes in gnustep-base.

I'm fairly sure that GNUstep will update their software. ;-)
