I second that, GNUstep app deployment on Windows is in a bad state and needs improvements. App deployment in *nix-es is possible and functional (although you need to compose a special bundle with all the libs inside, but it works).

In Windows, if you're only using the FoundationKit (i.e. non-graphical part), the process is pretty straightforward - copy DLLs, launch executable, done. I've written a small Objective-C + OpenGL + GLUT game at my school, and it was more portable than most of my fellow students' games (written in things like Java or C#).
