The framework flag is only implemented by Apples gcc and by an Cocotron
extension, if I remember correctly.

GNUsteps redirects the output of NSLog into the Windows event mechanism.
In all graphical applications writing anything to standard out wouldn't
make sense. You can get output at the prompt while debugging an
application. (Use debugapp instead of openapp)

Hope this helps
