The Look, Feel, and Pictures menus are automagically generated from the 
look, feel, and backgrounds directories.  If one of those directories is 
empty, the corresponding menu will be, too.  It sounds like you want the 
shared looks/feels to be in your menu, but have created empty look/ and 
feel/ dirs.  Copy the shared looks and feels to your local dir:

cp /usr/local/share/afterstep/looks/* ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/looks
cp /usr/local/share/afterstep/feels/* ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/feels
