I don't understand how GCC depends on Mach. Please enlighten me.

I choose the name libvk for the following (trivial) reasons:
  1. I have no idea what libmom really does (do you know under which
     CVS tag libmom can be downloaded? I'd like to have a look at what
     was already there)
  2. I wanted to avoid name clashes with something I don't know anything
  3. libvk should also be available on guest-OSes. Was libmom intended
     to do that?
  4. libvk functions should be defined inline as far as possible for
     max. speed. Quid libmom?

If libmom is that what is intended in libvk, then let's call it libmom.
I have no preference whatsoever.
