Please install X11 from the Tiger DVD BEFORE installing XQuartz 2.3.2. 
Mike and I both recommend it and this is critical so that his Wine for
MacOSX (formerly known as Darwine) builds will run.

Also, I have found that some of the symbolic links that are required for
Mike's builds to run are not present and he assumes that you have not
installed either Fink nor MacPorts.  If you have installed either, you
will have to add a line to his wine file that points to their
installation directories BEFORE his internal library files. 

Since I use Fink which uses a special directory structure, you will have
to add:


to the exports portion of the script before it calls mwine.

BTW, I just built 1.1.14 with his build environment.  I could not get
libgphoto2 to build so I commented it out.
