Should not be a problem for Philippe to compile everything present

package them making .deb packages and pushing them in the repo.
It just takes time and some cursing.
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
Sorry, I'm not that man. I'm not a debian developer, I don't follow
their mailing lists and I don't want to enter a debate about gcc
versus clang, I see no fun in that.
Honestly I don't even know why I'm building those packages. I don't
use them and I mostly stopped using GNUstep all together (for various
reasons), I'm not going to invest more time in this.
My main system is wheeze, and I have all gnustep and related
software built with clang3.3. Also, clang is present in the debian
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 should probably think about it twice before ranting. Yavor is
doing a great job packaging GNUstep, its librairies and applications
although there are probably less than 50 users. It's a boring job
