O.K. New Start. Since it is not possible to have a Darwin/GNUstep System that runs Mac OS X Cocoa Binaries I want to have a System that simply runs.
I want to reach that goal with the tools I've got with Darwin (especially the compiler which seems to be a derivate of gcc 2.95.2 as the People from address@hidden told me) plus maybe some extra tools.
I want to take the way with the least pitfalls.
I read the Dokumentation of gnustep-make and know now that i'll have to build a nx-gnu-gnu-gnu library combo since I'll have to use Darwins Objective C runtime (must be libobjc.A.dylib, libobjc.A_profile.dylib, libobjc.dylib, libobjc_profile.dylib in /usr/lib/). I think I have to make gnustep-base, gnustep-gui, gnustep-xgps and WindowMaker and I don't need to make gnustep-libobjc, but what about ffcall, libxml, dgs, gnustep-guile and openssl, will I need them, will they run?
Then You said something about a possible nx-nx-gnu-gnu combo. Is this possible with plain vanilla Darwin, is there a Foundation library somewhere? And which packages would I need to compile and install then?

Thanks for your help, Lars
