Thanks ... that sounds clear but forgive me for wasting time dopuble-checking;  
We should remove support for specifying the fragile/nonfragile option from 
gnustep make since it doesn't work on any new systems?
I'm happy with that (while I'd dearly like to be able to inspect variables 
under debug without having to make explicit function calls to the runtime, I'm 
sure people can live with that limitation).
