Justin reports what he did to build the Download For Macintosh ...

I had to hack around with the makefile a bit but I got her to fire up. Notes and compile requirements are in the makefile patch at the bottom of this e-mail. I'll also attach a copy of a disk image with the binary for systems 10.3 and up. The binary should be able to run out of the box with a simple drag and drop or will also run inside the mounted disk image. I don't know about 10.2 systems but I suspect all one would have to do is recompile from sources once you have the supporting libraries installed.

The binary is linked dynamically but checking what it's linked too I don't see anything that wouldn't be in a standard OSX system. This is my first round with compiling a mac osx specific program though so who knows :)

Patch is as follows
