( Success story )
Ok, I got the solution. It is to compile gcc myseft under my (cygwin)
environment with Objective-C support. (Hurrah!)
Then I got another problem. I downloaded a gcc-3.0.1 (very hasty
decision) and seems like libobjc can't be compiled in a DLL form :-( The
libobjc version from http://gnustep.org site (
ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/libs/gnustep-objc-1.0.1.tar.gz ) looks
like for 2.xx versions of GCC only.
Ok. I got "config" dir and GNUMakefile from gnustep-objc-1.0.1.tar.gz
(above) into "libobjc" dir from GCC ditro.
Then added NXConstStr.m into GNUMakefile
and - viola! compiled objc.dll. It seems to work. Let's see what next :-)
