I'm using fpc trunk, so sometimes i have to rebuild compiler, rtl and
packages. Since building to /usr/* required root rights, i don't use
the path. I keep fpc sources and units at home directory.
And so not mess up with numerous fpc.cfg, i've modified /etc/fpc.cfg
to search for units at the home dir.

isn't it the same trick you've already done with the current
implementation? The only thing necessary is converter from ObjC
headers to Pascal headers. There's objcparser (objc 1.0 supported)
already available for Cocoa.

transcript is attached to the mail, hope it helps.
