I noticed that there were a number of source code files in the  
directories, but they were not in the Xcode project, for example


Am I correct that these are the old files and version 2.0 are just  
the files?


Essentially I compile the source files that I saw in the Xcode  
project.  These all compile fine, but I haven't tried to run a test  
program.  I was thinking that I would try to get the tests running on  
Mac then see how they run on GNUstep.

I'm not sure what changes there are that might not be supported by
