Not that we know of. We would be very interested in an MacOS X port. Do you 
have some knowledge about Mach? I doun't but in the kde-developer list some 
people discussed some quite ugly problems you have if you want to use 
dynamically loaded modules in OSX. Talking with the project that ports GIMP 
to mac, as well as with the fink people might be an idea. If I can help you, 
I would gladly do so.

configuring-and-hacking-the-gift.sgml  *should* be there directly after 
unpacking. Could you check if it's there? 

Do you have sed and perl installed?

And more imprtantly: do you use GNU make instead of BSD make? On some systems 
one has to type gmake rather than make. make would be BSD make on these

Again a file that should be there, that should be part of the archive. If 
not, drop me a line, I get the crisis, and send a fixed archive to the GNUs
