Thanks, I will start by going through the ffcall route, as that appears
to be suupported on amd64/FreeBSD right now, but if I have problems then
I will switch to your build. I want to try and get it working on as
vanilla a system as possible though in the first instance.

Excellent :-) My plan was to go through it and check on all the warnings which
come out at compile time and fix them - and in doing so possibly uncover and
problems which might be in there relating to the sizeof(int) still being
32 bits which may be present. Havent had a lot of time to do anything with
GNustep in a long time as I delegated development on it in work time
to someone else so this is something useful I can devote a bit
of time to!
