Hmm.. it appears there is an old install of GNUstep in your /opt/local/GNUstep, and the build process is picking up headers from there causing the problem.

(sarray.h is part of the apple runtime, I think, and the only place sarray.h is mentioned in base is at:
macosx/GNUstepBase/preface.h:74: "#include <objc/sarray.h>"
which I think is an old/unused file provided only for documentation purposes.) 

Try uninstalling gnustep-make, then just delete /opt/local/GNUstep.

Looks like clang warns about redefinition of __weak. Also, it appears clang cannot locate <objc/sarray.h>.

Zcode? Wow! *flattered*

I really need to get back to working on it.

I'm trying out the updated packages right now.

Some updates on my macports (https://github.com/ericwa/gnustep-macports-fixes): I've switched them to use clang and libobjc2, and have done some tidying. They are now working on both of my systems:
Mac OS 10.6.8 / Xcode 3.2.5 (x86_64)
Mac OS 10.7.2 / Xcode 4.2 

On 10.7, the system-provided clang is used; on 10.6 I install the clang port from macports (currently version 2.9. I couldn't get the system-provided clang, Apple version 1.6, to work.)

Apps I've tested include GSTest, Gorm, and Zcode. Blocks and native ObjC exceptions seem to be working on both systems.

This is great! Thanks for your effort. Btw. are those ports going to be at the macports repository?

I hope they will be accepted!

There are several things I would like to do before submitting them to macports:

- more testing
- hopefully get them working on OS 10.7 (they probably would work if the gcc46 port wasn't broken :-)
- the old ports contained some hacks for installing man pages/documentation... need to check if these are still needed
- maybe investigate getting them to compile with clang
- submit some of my patches to gnustep trunk
- once the next release of GNUstep comes out, get ports working with that release (currently my ports require trunk)
