I'm working with GNUstep for quite a while now, but this is actually
the first time in all these years that I (deliberately) want to create
a static, stand-alone GNUstep (non-AppKit) application.

It doesn't use/load bundles (eg. I don't use the SSL bundle) or other
frameworks than FoundationKit.

Some other person needs to be able to run the programme without installing
any additional libraries and he doesn't have root access to the machine.

My questions:

- Can a static GNUstep application be run without a full (static) GNUstep
  installation on the machine?

- IE. does a static GNUstep app use default values if it doesn't find the
  Ressources in the /usr/local/GNUstep directory? Or are there some files
  that *NEED* to be there?

- Is is neccessary that the GNUSTEP* environment variables are set to
  run the application?

- AFAIK it is not possible to create a statically linked libback_,
  since it uses (shared) bundles (ie. x11 or art).
  Are there any plans to support a statically compiled backend?

  (At least I'm able to compile a libgnustep-gui_s.la, if I uncomment
  "Tools" out of core/gui/GNUmakefile)

Thanks alot,
