I recently found this magic call to _gtk_quartz_framework_init() in

clarity I was wondering if I can just remove it. Can I?

I have never noticed this before, but a "framework" is a programming
API and library packed up as a proper bundle, and known to the compiler
on a higher level than just -L or -I.

The call was added by Richard, and iirc he also did a framework,
haven't heard about that in a while though.

He did a sort-of framework, but it was a bitch to maintain, so I didn't. Besides, it didn't work in that
one couldn't put -framework Gtk on the compile line and get your app to build. Instead you had to pass
horrible fixed-path -I and -L directives, and there is no m4 macro to discover them.

Benjamin, I have no problem with you deleting those calls.
