That's exactly what I thought I was suggesting - sorry if it wasn't clear.

Well, we'll need to install the CoreBase headers anyway if we want the string.h 
and other stuff to be included by Foundation.h (as it is on OS X.  

Nicola: I wonder if this alters the performance of precompiled headers - the 
preprocessed Foundation.h header on OS X is significantly larger than with 
GNUstep, in part because it includes all of this other stuff.
