I believe GNUstep Make should work fine if you specify the extra OBJCFLAGS when 
configuring it (it doesn't need to know what they mean, it will just pass them 
to the compiler).

I've tested configure of make and base with the non-fragile ABI as the default, 
and it all appeared to work.  I'd especially like to make the new dispatch 
mechanism the default for x86[-64] and ARM on any platforms where the GNUstep 
runtime is going to be standard, because this give a 10% size reduction in base 
and much faster message sends.

Is it possible to fix them?  They will also find it difficult to work with 
modern OS X.
