Is there a way to include the [Objective-C Bridge][1] and build/run the Clozure CL IDE on a Linux system that has the GNUstep libraries and development environment installed? 

[1]: http://ccl.clozure.com/docs/ccl.html#the-objective-c-bridge

[Wikipedia][2] says: "GNUstep is a free software implementation of the Cocoa (formerly OpenStep) Objective-C frameworks, widget toolkit, and application development tools for Unix-like operating systems and Microsoft Windows."

and goes on to say: "The GNUstep developers track some additions to Apple's Cocoa to remain compatible."

It looks like it will be more involved than following [these instructions][3].
