gEDA development has always been with the main focus on Linux and have 
never cared about macOS and Windows.
In recent years, competition from KiCad (which is madly actively 
developed cross platform by CERN and is still GPL) I think has killed 
the development of gEDA. The only exception is GerbV which is still 
maintained and is quite up to date for Linux and Windows, but not for macOS:

In reality GerbV has always been the only program in the package to 
compile correctly for Windows, I generated it annually for Linux and 
Windows colleagues, and due to its ease I still find it superior to the 
one integrated into KiCad, even if it does not support the Gerber X2 
standard is become obsolete.

Take a look to Lepton:
