   No more nonsensical than your attempt to define the boundaries of
   an operating system to be the userspace utilities that GNU happen
   to have produced. So gcc is part of the operating system. Would a
   Pascal compiler form part of an operating system?

GCC includes a pascal compiler.

   A Haskell compiler?

One could include a haskell compiler in a operating system, many GNU
variants have a haskell compiler, for example gNewSense

   How about gnuchess?

The GNU operating system includes GNU Chess, so do many GNU variants,
see above.
