Yes, but it's not perfect.  Converting OS4.2 apps is not a problem, at least
for me.   I have the most trouble porting MOSX applications since I don't
currently own a machine which runs it.

I literally was able to bring in the make files and do a build.   For
SenFoundation I believe that there were some obj-c runtime definitions which
are being used and, in the case of GNUstep, these are in the extensions library
not in the normal includes.

I can post the patch, if you want.   As I said there were almost no
modifications.   As I stated in a previous note, the only problem I am having
w/ CVL is that I cannot get SenOyster to build properly with the perl.h and
EXTERN.h headers I have on my system.
