I've successfully build and installed all the way up through -base on darwin using gnu-gnu-gnu. I used GNUstep's libobjc, and pyobjc's libffi. In gui I am getting this error:


P.S. I plan on making a guide for building on darwin, if I can get the rest to compile happily. I am using apple's gcc, and most of the modifications have simply been to add "-lobjc" to a whole bunch of make files. :-) For base I had to add "-framework CoreFoundation" to resolve "___CFConstant...comething...blah..."

Well, no one has gotten GNUstep to work with the Apple compiler as far as I know, so you are probably in for some fun. Have you actually been able to get GNUstep base to work (i.e. run some of the tests in the Testing directory or some of the Tools)?

If you are doing gnu-gnu-gnu, then you probably want to add -fgnu-runtime to the compile flags (GNUstep make might be doing that automatically, but make sure). Also, it's likely you'll have to remove the libobjc.dylib that comes with Apple's GCC, or at least make sure the the GNUstep libobjc.a is named libobjc.dylib so it's properly linked (see http://www.gnustep.org/information/machines_1.html#SEC2).

The CFConstant... stuff doesn't sound good - sounds like it is trying to link in more stuff than it should.
