	In the normal NetBSD distribution, Objective-C support in gcc
	is missing. To be more precise, Objective-C support is there,
	but it is incomplete --- what is even worse, IMHO. Even though
	cc1obc and libobj.a are there, the library is incomplete and
	all required includes are missing.

	Please include the /usr/include/objc/* files and the complete
	/usr/lic/libobjc.a in the next distribution, as this will add
	only 50k (at a maximum) of required disk space, but will
	enable NetBSD to compile Objective-C code out of the box.
