Eek! I'd rather not install yet another version of gcc... I have three now (default apple, 3.3.5 and 3.3.6), and some parts of 3.4 as well (libffi I think). I've been following the instructions exactly - does no-one know why it's not working with this setup? The documentation said it was supported. Failing that... is it possible for anyone to send me the pre- compiled files? Or will that not work?

I can understand that, but you may still find some useful flags and patches in there what I did the last time is that I used the libobjc 1.3 and I installed it in GNUstep/System/Library/Libraries (which is the default I think) but you will still have to watch each build and patch Makefiles for missing -L and -l flags
I have made some binaries in the GNU-Darwin distribution,
http://gulus.usherbrooke.ca/pub/distro/gnu-darwin/
but there is a lot of stuff in there (including another gcc - required :-) You can always get the iso and install stuff you need by hand but that's a rather tedious process.


For what it's worth, I got the latest CVS versions of gnustep make and base packages working on tiger a couple of days ago using gcc-4.1 This compiler version uses a different name for the gnu objc runtime (libobjc-gnu), making it easy for the apple and gnu runtimes to coexist on the same machine.

Note also, someone failed with the same error you had using "gcc4 from Darwin ports":

And again on Panther:

http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-gnustep/2005-06/msg00135.html

No solution found in either case, though there are periodic success reports as well. I suspect there must be some condition that hasn't been identified and put in the instructions that affects finding the objc library during linking. Maybe this condition depends on OS X and compiler versions, maybe not..
