Is it possible to compile the compiler using the objective C compiler, or
does the source use extensions not present in gnu-objc ?
The reason I ask, is that it would seem that for certain platforms only
limited binaries are supported, i.e the Linux platform has no 486 binary
and only a few 586 binaries.
