( Success story )
        Hello, all!
Ok, I got the solution. It is to compile gcc myseft under my (cygwin) 
environment with Objective-C support. (Hurrah!)

Then I got another problem. I downloaded a gcc-3.0.1 (very hasty 
decision) and seems like libobjc can't be compiled in a DLL form :-( The 
libobjc version from http://gnustep.org site ( 
ftp://ftp.gnustep.org/pub/gnustep/libs/gnustep-objc-1.0.1.tar.gz ) looks 
like for 2.xx versions of GCC only.

Ok. I got "config" dir and GNUMakefile from gnustep-objc-1.0.1.tar.gz 
(above) into "libobjc" dir from GCC ditro.
Then added NXConstStr.m into GNUMakefile
and - viola! compiled objc.dll. It seems to work. Let's see what next :-)

Regards, Ildar.
