behaviour functions are used in GNUstep base. gdl2 don't use them.
There were talks about putting GNUstep extensions in a separate library but 
noone start it, AFAIK.

dev-libs/extensions are mainly Garbage collection related and are used in gdl2 
(gdl2 need 
garbage collection for some objects)

I think too that it would be nice to clarify dev-libs/extensions status and 
move GNustep extension 
in it (or in another library).
