Should not be a problem for Philippe to compile everything present in his private repo with clang (gnustep and stepchat) and then package them making .deb packages and pushing them in the repo.

The problem is that the packages inside the Philippe's repo can conflict with the official debian one, where packages still are built on gcc and the old runtime.

I think, Philippe, you should write on the Debian mailing list, asking for the possibilities to build gnustep and related software with clang.

My main system is wheeze, and I have all gnustep and related software built with clang3.3. Also, clang is present in the debian repos.

If I don't see and evolution inside the official debian repo, about gnustep, I think I'll go to write a rant on their mailing list due of a Debian user from years and years.

you would like to add another package

Like much of Etoile stuff, I understand that StepChat must be compiled with 
clang and requires a clang-compiled GNUstep, and I would like to see all this 
stuff in Debian someday (I am still in the process of working out how they may 
handle it without breaking the rest of their system).

This may be a dumb question, but would we be okay if Debian started compiling 
_all_ GNUstep packages with clang instead of gcc, or would we prefer if they 
had both clang and gcc packages?
