I am not an ObjC user, but I do see the test results on my platform
and other platforms.  I agree that a more general solution is required
for this problem.  For example, I think ObjC requires a thread
configuration to work properly (or at least I know I can make this
statement: on some platforms, when configured to use threads, the
thread library must be provided by the user or else all tests fail).

FYI, the people working on Java have a general solution to this type
of problem.  They use a modified spec file that hooks in to override
%{lib}.  I don't know that it is the absolute best approach possible
if they were completely unconstrained to make changes outside libjava
but it does seem to work well enough.
