Yep, those 4 are what it is currently being ported to (oh and various 
unixes of course).

compilation and testing are the main thing, though it won't be until 
next month that I'll have somthing worth playing with (holidays and 
all that). If you could see if you can get sword compiled for the mac 
at some point (no rush :), it'll probably take a while to sort out the 
usual cross platform problems of headers and missing functions ), 
and after that wxMac that would be great.
