pkg/44783: gnustep-back contains a mistake that prevents all GNUStep apps from running

NetBSD 5.1 NetBSD 5.1 (GENERIC) #0: Sun Nov 7 14:39:56 UTC 2010
All GNUStep applications like for example GNUMail or Project Center crash
complaining about the gnustep-back bundle:
The problem seems to be that the gnustep-back bundle is linked against the
wrong libraries (as I found out on osdir.com)
"The problem is the -R/usr/X11R7/lib flag on the command line. This option is
understood by NetBSD's gcc and it ends up as an *initial* -R flag to the
linker, whereas the -Wl,-R<dir> options stay in their place. That means that
the broken libpixman will be found before the right one in /usr/pkg/lib.
Unfortunately, the -R flag is added automatically by autoconf when testing for
the X libraries, so we cannot get rid of it."
pkg_add -v GNUMail
After a long search I found that someone was able to fix it:
compile gnustep-back with ./configure LDFLAGS=-R/usr/pkg/lib
Here is the thread where they describe it:
however I wasn't able to change the Makefiles or patches to bring the success.
Adding simply LDFLAGS=-R/usr/pkg/lib under the CONFIGURE+= into the pkgsrc
Makefile didn't help.
