I can't think of any fundamental problems. I suspect Objective C normally
wants the collector built to recognize all interior pointers, where gcj
builds it without that option, so that interior pointers are recognized only
if they're on a stack. This is currently a build time option, but that
probably doesn't save very much anymore over making it a runtime option.
Does Objective C normally use the collector with thread support?
There are probably also other issues with the build process. Tom Tromey can
probably comment on those.
