I believe that OBJC and OBJCFLAGS are standard for Autoconf/Automake:

https://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/html_node/Objective-C-Support.html

https://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/manual/autoconf-2.61/html_node/Output-Variable-Index.html#Output-Variable-Index

https://www.google.com/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=using%20objective%20c%20with%20autoconf%20automake

Sorry, I don't do Autotools --- a software package that came to us directly
from the seventh level of Hell.  CMake's main claim to fame is it's not as
bad.
