As a followup to this it would be nice if the archive had downloadable
binaries...

Which leads me to the point of this post. To what degree is this
possible in GNUstep? I notice that I have 'GNUSTEP_FLATTENED="yes"',
but seem to recall something like fat binary support in the past (I
guess flattening is the default now?). Being able to unpack and use a
single .app, even if it is on the 'chubby' side, would be very
nice. (/me looks grumpily at individual linux apps evenly distributed
over the entire filesystem).

However a quick ldd on Calculator suggests it would be impractical. It
seems to be linked to libungif, libpng12, etc beyond just the gnustep
libs, which I assume is a limitation of the linux linker. OS X seems
to have a funky linker which can refer to frameworks, hence isolating
such dependencies.

Any suggestions as to whether this could be possible?
