Currently clang far better supports newer Objective-C/OpenStep features than gcc - for example Auto Referencing Counting (ARC).

Clang should become the default compiler for CoreGTK.

There is an issue with GNUstep and clang where gnustep-config --objc-flags expands to include an argument "-fexec-charset=UTF-8" which clang errors on. Need a work around for this.

Clang is now the default compiler. Added indirect_compiler.sh script to strip out the problem argument generated from GNUstep before invoking the compiler. Probably not the correct approach but this can also be fixed later.
