I think depending on the installed framework is definitely the way to
go and that's how I've been approaching the port. This has lead to
some minor issues. For example the version of glib included with the
framework looks to be too old to support the gstreamer libraries
necessary for last.fm streaming, but this can probably be worked

I'm making progress and should have something testable within a week or so.

Thanks for the advise,
