I've done it - with raw Objective-C anyway. Used to work this way
for ages at my current company - they had NT webservers, but one
of my conditions of employment is that I will not be made to use Windows.
So I just wrote everything in Obj-C on BSD, then compiled under Cygwin to
make a single .exe. It works very nicely.

I am not sure how you would persuade GNustep to link staticly, but surely
it can't be that hard (it's harder to make DLL's I would have though!)
Just grabbing all the .o files and sticking them in a library would be
my 'quick and dirty' approach.
