I guess you haven't tried this with gcc3 - it works right now.
Even the most basic Darwin system has a NeXT-type objc runtime
installed (that's the "objc4" project).

In case it wasn't clear before, this change *only* applies to Darwin
and Mac OS X systems.  Random Unix, Windows, etc default to
-fgnu-runtime just as before.  The general GCC philosophy is to
interoperate with standard system facilities, since that is what
users expect, and the NeXT runtime is the standard on Darwin-based
