Are you saying that you'd be against a --with-PortabilityKit flag in core/ 
that would automagically download and compile, and install PK as a 
framework? (if need be I have absolutely no problem with a disclaimer 
wherein it would be stated that PortabilityKit was not an official part of 
GNUstep, with a Yes/No are you sure confirmation, although I'd prefer that 
not to be there)
