gnustep-make 2.7.0-3 and gnustep-base 1.25.1-3 are build with conflicting settings wrt exceptions.

gnustep-make has --enable-native-objc-exceptions which explicitly enables compiler native exceptions.
Otoh gnustep-base doesn't set an exception type which defaults to traditional exceptions.

see for the exact error message.

Anything that depends on gnustep-make can no longer compile.
I've received a couple of reports about it in the AUR too.

I am not good at the gnustep toolchain so it is not clear for me what would be the best solution for it. Do you have an advice how to fix it? Ideally if you can provide a PKGBUILD patch for it.

The culprit were the AUR packages `gnustep-gui` and `gnustep-back` packages being out-of-date. I've upgraded them from 0.27 to 0.28 and published the changes.
Ideally, shouldn't these 2 packages be moved to the community repository alongside gnustep-base and gnustep-make?

@anatolik you can make this as resolved.
