Hi Fred,

The simplest way to work around this issue is to switch to fake main, which may

But you should rather try to find out what is the issue here instead.

fake main is automatically enabled in OpenBSD and all othe apps do work, so for some reason it is ineffective. What could it be?

In the meanwhile I tried building on FreeBSD and Linux and there I get Emacs 25.1 to compile with almost no tricks. The application starts, gets a menu adn i am able to type in it! However, there is no toolbar, everything is white and I can't open a file neither from the menu (panel opens, but error happens later) neither if I pass the file as application argument.

A glance at the code shows a lot, really a lot of Mac vs. Apple differences. Most seems however changes specific to Apple where GNUstep uses an older openstep code path, but some are more difficult to understand.

I will do further tests. It might be an interesting thing. I'd love a usable Emacs app and of course a strange and complex app to test GNUstep against!
Let's join forces.
