Actually, I am building it with project builder. While I think that
Fink is a Good Thing, I definitely do not want my Mac OS X becoming
Linux. (I can hug the penguin, but I don't think I can hug the Linux.)
So I am focusing on "drag the Mono framework to your
System/Library/Frameworks (or $HOME/Library/Frameworks) and then (for
now) drag the .exe assembly onto the Mono application. Eventually, I'd
like a MRMonoAppBuilder, kind of like the MRJAppBuilder. At that point,
I'd probably put the whole Mono runtime into a Mono.app bundle, but I'm
not sure. That part is iffy. But now you know my goal. Luckily
enough, it's not a very challenging goal unto itself.
Radek (rodo) gave me some pointers to Mozilla code that interests me.
It turns out that the Mac calling convention could be a lot simpler than
I thought. It is essentially the Mach calling convention, I think, but
I could be wrong. But considering that Mach was designed for the MIPS
R2000, and the PowerPC is a direct descendant, this is not too
unlikely. Kudos to DEC for giving CMU a bargain! Thanks a million, rodo!
