The only thing I see stopping you from building MacPass is it's dependency on Carbon.  It's been 19 years, folks.  Carbon should be a thing of the distant past, though some could say the same about Cocoa, it's kind of weird to still have things which depend on Carbon.   That being said we do have a library called "Boron" which is supposed to be a replacement for Carbon, but I haven't used it so I am unaware of it's completeness.   Using Carthage under Linux and GNUstep might not work, but I am pretty certain, from a glance, that it would not be too hard to get it to work under GNUstep.

Thank You for the link. I will try it soon, when I shall be enough experienced with buildtool.
