Yes ... I'd probably like to change the library combo for OSX from
nx-nx-nx to apple-apple-apple.

In theory I should have kept support for the three building options, gnu,
nx, apple, as you say ... but it started to get complex, so I dropped the
oldest and (frankly) obsolete one.

It's just to simplify maintaintenance that I did it.  I can rewrite and
recast code more freely this way.  I had no way to check the old code, and
looking at it, I also think it was already broken.

Ok - I'll go on with it.

Thanks for the suggestion.  Not immediately, but maybe later.
