Framework support is not fully implemented yet but it could work on any
platform with some restrictions:

1. If dladdr() is not working/present the compiled framework installation dir
   is used. (that could be GNUSTEP_*_ROOT related)
2. Not all the systems could dynamically load a library.
3. nm could have problems finding the framework classes (at compile time).
4. Not every systems have dylib support. (but you could compile a framework
   with a static lib)

Anyway there are also problems using libs...
