Work in berkelium has ceased as the library isn't supported anymore. I have however not seen this since so I believe it's not happening anymore. I will come up with a concrete test to verify.

Gregory, does this problem still happen? Even if you don't work anymore on Berkelium.

I don't know why this happend and whether it is still the case. in NSObjCRuntime.h we have this settings (actually twice as they are already in GSConfig.h):

#ifdef __cplusplus

This should ensure that limits get defined when stdint.h is included, even for C++.

Could you please check the file GSConfig.h? This gets generated by the configure script and should be in the directory Source/GNUstepBase. In my case I can see an include for "inttypes.h" which includes "stdint.h". There shoul dbe code here to redefine INTPTR_MAX if it is missing or buggy on your system.

The Berkelium.mm file has only the #include for Foundation.h and a skeletal definition for the class. I am getting the following error which doesn't happen when I compile the very same class as ObjC:

g++ Berkelium.mm -c \
