Actually, I have Mike's code and it uses the Darwine build system and
applies two patches to it. One brings in FontForge so that Apple Native
fonts will work in Wine, and this is discussed on the Building Wine for
MacOSX web page. The other fixes a known problem for Leopard's handling
of screen location (it does not always use :0.0 for security
reasons). I will suggest that he bring back into the Darwine project
his fixes. I think he already has tried but received no response from
As to the rest, AJ has stated, repeatedly, that he wants no Obj-C in the
Wine tree. This prevents bringing in some Mac specific code, and
completely eliminates the winequartz.drv project. I'm not going to
argue with his reasoning, but this forces a Native version of Wine to be
a continuous fork with fixes in Wine requiring fixes (if winex11.drv is
changed) in the code.
As to support for the Mac, I have been doing what some Mac users are
doing now: Building my own. Unfortunately, I do not have a place to
put my builds where the public can download them. Also, they contain
code that has not been approved for the main Wine build and may contain
'dangerous' code. I'm willing to risk my system's stability to test,
but not others.
