I also have no idea - I was just assuming that it works if not rejected by the script or the build system...
That's a fair assumption since the purpose of this script is to install anywhere GNUstep is supported. It seems I will need to have it fall back to gcc on architectures that don't support clang or libobjc2.

Yes, MIPS is unfortunately quite rare and especially with a RasPi style of hardware (I think it even has a compatible connector)...

True. Is this on one of the letux devices? I had one a while ago, but I don't have it anymore. It got destroyed by my kids (it was a LONG time ago). Is there any way you might be able to lend me one so that I can test on it?

All errors after this point are spurious as this dooms them all. :)
