[sword-devel] Mac OS X update [non-native front-end stuff]

heya Chris + others...  just a couple of things...  have tried to use 
previous versions of gs, and even the new cvs branch (gnomesword1) all 
to no avail.  the gnomesword1 looked promising as it compiled all the 
backend stuff, but failed in the gnome subdirectory...  was looking thru 
the porting notes used for the fink ports, and the only one of interest 
was for gtkhtml and said:

	gtkhtml - HTML rendering/printing/editing engine.

	This is GtkHTML, a lightweight HTML rendering/printing/editing 
engine. It was originally based on
	KHTMLW, but is now being developed independently of it.

	Web site: http://www.gnome.org/

	Porting Notes: Renamed Spell.idl to SpellI.idl, because it will 
overwrite spell.h. Added -module
	libtool flag to http-storage-module. Fixed declaration and 
definition mismatch.

	testgtkhtml uses functions from libwww, but doesn't ensure the 
appropriate libraries are listed on the
	link command line. The quick fix is to get the flags from 
libwww-config on the fly in the Makefile.

anyway, don't think that affects us, but am now going to stop and retry 
some other time (well, have only been touching this on and off for the 
last couple of days)...

on another note, I seem to have misplaced my keys.txt file...  I think 
something happened to it in my migration from my linux box to this OS X 
box (much nicer, prettier, and -- actually, looks are all that matter, 
aren't they? ;) -- 1 sam 16:7 probably means God doesn't think so, 
tho...)...  where can I get a new copy?

/end of nic's ramblings for the day and month...

	nic...  :)
