behaviour functions are used in GNUstep base. gdl2 don't use them.
There were talks about putting GNUstep extensions in a separate library but noone start it, AFAIK.

dev-libs/extensions are mainly Garbage collection related and are used in gdl2 (gdl2 need
garbage collection for some objects)

I think too that it would be nice to clarify dev-libs/extensions status and move GNustep extension
in it (or in another library).

I'm trying (very gradually) to put GNUstep-base extensions in the Additions subdirectory, where they can be built either as a standalone library or as part of the base library.

That way, the base library always builds them as part of itsself so it can use them internally, but they should in theory (ie if someone actually ports and works on the code) be usable standalone on
systems where the base library is not installed.

A couple of things which really should be moved to the Additions library are -

unicode functions and character encoding support
behavior functions.
additional runtime functions.
