O.K. - I might try that as I still have some problems....

yes, I worked out I needed Java after about 20 minutes! But once that
was figured out it all compiled fine. Why wont Cygwin ship a working
libobjc then ?

I think there may be a similar issue with gpbs - that also exhibits the
problem of apps not being able to find it and so constantly trying to
start new copies.

My other problem has been with renaissance - I can compile and install
the library fine (with a minor patch - see bug report submitted earlier).
but applications compiled and linked against it seem to not be able to
find any of the functions in the library - category methods on
NSBundle for examle (i.e. the method to load a markup file!). Could this
be a libobjc problem somehow ?

But I feel that I am gettign a lot closer than I was to avign a running
system - this is certainly as near as I have every come... I have Ink.app
working now (aside from cut/paste obviously).
