make -n gc=yes
copy the line
remove -llibobjc_gc
paste the line, run it, it works!

This might work to get the thing to compile, but it looks a lot like you strip out garbage collection in the same step. Does GC still work, then?

Although I asked many times I had exactly one answer on "how to compile with Boehm GC" and it was:
"make gc=yes"

Well, I didn't do much work on the GC stuff and I stayed quiet for this reason.

Vaguely I remember some discussion on the GNUstep lists about this technology when it was introduced to GNUstep a few years ago. To my understanding, you have to reconfigure and recompile all gcc (including libobj-c) and all of the GNUstep libraries for Boehm-GC support.

Apple is doing some work on garbage collection as well and is also using gcc. Not sure wether it's the same collector, though.
