"The Cocotron proper is only source code to a runtime, without a compiler
and sufficient tools this is relatively useless, so the project also
maintains The Cocotron Developer Tools (CDT)"

A linker with framework support would appear to be one of those tools. That
said, if it is possible to build it not as a framework then it's on you to
figure out (a) how you link against these frameworks (b) how to teach
programs that know that these libraries are frameworks, that they are not.
