Thanks David for the example - interesting point - I was assuming that
Stephane would be using Project Builder on Apple only, and that on Windows
you would always be using GNUstep.

Huh? Oh, yeah, right, exactly. ;-) Is there a ProjectBuilder running under Windows which could reference an ObjC-Foundation using this build system? I think your right, that this is a non-issue and we'll just use GNUSTEP_WITH_DLL. (Why does Apple still have these defines in thier projects? Are they silently building on Windows systems?)

But my suggestion - as a very general principle - is to try to address and
support other users' requests for integration/porting (if those requests
don't compromise the project's design and aims).  It's part of an 'open',
'free' philosophy after all. :-)

Yes, Stéphan, please excuse me if I came across as not honoring your efforts. I just don't happen to have an OS X to verify and maintain OS X specifics, but I must keep everything working using the gnustep build system. So if your willing to maintain the OS X specifics, and they don't interfere unproportionately with the rest, please don't let me dissuade you.

I don't see any major disruption to our headers in
saying Stephane can build on PBX, and distribute PBX project files to
build stuff on PBX, so (with the clause the GNUmakefiles are the official
build system, that they must always be kept updated etc) I'd support it.

Maybe as separate files (distributed separately) if you so prefer.
I'm not worried about having these files in the distribution or not. As long as I'm not expected to maintain them. I still am little worried that this might have a larger impact other source files though. I mean on the one hand Stéphane seems to have it working using PBX, on the other hand, we do a lot in the with the gnustep-make system. Thinking about it, I'm quite surprised, how that can be easily translated into PBX. But then again, maybe it wasn't that easy...
