Hi Stanislav,

Thanks alot for the pointer! I've updated gnustep-base to use the attribute for its root classes (when compiling with clang, that is).

It seems that the new clang considers definition of a new root class an advanced feature by default, since base classes now should have _attribute_((objc_root_class)) before @interface.

See: (

And somehow the objc-root-class warning option gets turned on.

Please note that clang doesn't strictly emit an error here, but a warning which is then escalated using -Werror, so gnustep-make is not generating invalid code here (there are perfectly sensible reasons for implementing root classes, after all). But there seems to be no valid reason why the framework dummy-classes should be root-classes, so I went ahead applied your patch.

Hi, when building an Etoile framework I stumbled upon a compiler error with the new clang (version 3.2 (trunk 160797)). It doesn't like @interface without a base class.

The patch fixes the issue.

Errors look like this:

derived_src/NSFramework_LanguageKit.m:2:12: error: class 'NSFramework_LanguageKit' defined without specifying a base class
@interface NSFramework_LanguageKit
derived_src/NSFramework_LanguageKit.m:2:35: note: add a super class to fix this problem
@interface NSFramework_LanguageKit
: NSObject
1 error generated.
