The GNUstep Objective-C runtime was designed as a drop-in replacement for the GCC runtime. It supports three ABIs: - The old GCC ABI, which provides support for Objective-C 1.0 features. This can be selected via the -fobjc-runtime=gcc flag in Clang or by compiling with GCC. - The initial GNUstep non-fragile ABI, which was intended to be compatible with the GCC ABI, but provide support for modern Objective-C features. This can be selected with the -fobjc-runtime=gnustep-1.9 flag in Clang. - The modern (v2) ABI, which provides richer reflection metadata, smaller binaries and reduced memory usage. This is selected with the -fobjc-runtime=gnustep-2.0 flag in Clang 7.0 or later.
Binary packages can be installed with the high-level tool pkgin (which can be installed with pkg_add) or pkg_add(1) (installed by default). The NetBSD packages collection is also designed to permit easy installation from source.
The pkg_admin audit command locates any installed package which has been mentioned in security advisories as having vulnerabilities.
Please note the vulnerabilities database might not be fully accurate, and not every bug is exploitable with every configuration.
