Hello !

I must say that I prefer the long answer, because :

1/      I don't rely on the AppKit
2/ I don't use the distributed notification, pasteboard or objects mapper

however, I still have this question in mind : how do I practically link gnustep statically to my application with GNUstep makefile ?

The long answer:

Although it is theoretically possible to link all of the libraries statically
in this way, there are several reasons why it wouldn't work:

1) Resources. The gui library, in particular makes use of Images which are located on the installation dir. It also relies on some .gorm files which are in the resources as well which define some of the panels which are standard in

2) Daemons. The base and gui library have daemon processes which need to be running for some functionality to work correctly. Chief among these are: gdnc - the distributed notification center, gpbs - the pasteboard service, gdomap - the distributed objects mapper. Each of these plays an important role in making GNUstep function. Without these some GNUstep apps would be hopelessly

GNUstep is not special in this way. Other development kits and environments
require similar daemons to run to offer certain features.

The short answer: NO. ;)
