Hi Alan

I believe that it compiles on Unix-ish systems so it should run on
mac. I have of course no first hand experience.

The other question is about input method.
I see
that setxkbmap has disappeared from mac :-(

So we will need to look for an emacs (rather than window-system)

As it happens I asked on emacs-devel list
and a long thread evolved in which among others David de la Harpe
Golden gave a first cut at an emacs input method

Its really in hacked-up stage as of now and I am travelling so cant
see it through to something more polished for a few weeks.

Still if it works please let me know 
If I were trying, Id try to first start apl in emacs with something
like eshell. Then use David's input method.
