Two questions arise:
1) The modified gnustep-make package will have no trouble migrating to
testing (before the transition even commences), so it would make
GNUstep development in wheezy broken, just like it is now in sid.
2) Building the GNUstep packages with the non-default compiler on ia64
and sparc is, strictly speaking, a policy violation.
If the release team does not object, we can go on and make gobjc-4.6 a
strict requirement via gnustep-make.
