I do not know of any ports of Self to the black NeXT.  I have been thinking
about doing one for awhile, but never gotten the time or the motivation (since
I have access to a Sun).

As has been stated in this group before. Self is a native compiler and thus
not easy to port to other platforms.  Last I had heard though, only a port to
the Intel processor was in the works (correct me if I am wrong...).  So maybe
it will will just need a GUI facelift to get it working for white NeXT

Hope this helps
