It doesn't need Cocoa at all. Right now it just depends on -lffi -lobjc
and Foundation.framework. Foundation could be removed (I think it's just
for -retain and -release). I know GNUstep's -lobjc is different from
Apple's, but it should have equivalent functionality that would be easy to
port to if it doesn't have the same functions.
Makefile twiddling would probably be required in unusual environments.
I'd be happy to help. :)
