GCG for NextStep/OpenStep?

As far as I know GCG runs on DEC OpenVMS, and UNIX (OSF - Digital  
UNIX, IBM AIX, SGI IRIX and SunOS).  I don't see any signs of  
NeXTSTEP in either the vers 8 or vers 7 manuals, but that's as far  
back as we go for manuals lying around.  We run NeXTSTEP/OpenSTEP on  
our desktop machines and are considering Rhapsody as an upgrade  
path. GCG is installed on a DEC Alpha and we use SGI's for graphics  
workstations.  If there is enough interest and since Rhapsody is BSD  
4.4 based and supposed to be Posix compliant, who knows?

You can check out www.gcg.com/products/hardware.html for version  
info.  I'm sure there are some GCG folks lurking out there, and  
maybe more interest in seeing GCG on Rhapsody?  Ultimately though,  
I'll bet it will be up to Oxford Molecular.
