In case they are missing, I'll attempt a build then. It would be a pity 
to drop something that works.
The problem here is that it works with "old" versions, but I had to 
update the runtime dependencies and also all those nasty package 
overrides I need.

That said the question remains if I can mark a dependency generic on 
"CSWlibobjc*" or somehow, instead of CSWlibobjc4
