I just tried compiling it on Mac OS X 10.3. The only problem I had
compiling TN5250 from CVS was that the version of autoconf was too old;
I installed a later version from Fink and had no problems at all. This
wouldn't be a problem with a released tar ball anyway.

It's still a curses program, so it doesn't integrate well with the way
Mac OS X works. I don't know enough about the Mac yet to do anything
about this. I also don't have a version of Xcode installed that can
generate universal binaries.

Fred, how would you expect a simple Unix terminal or X11 program to run
and be distributed on OS X? A native GUI is probably not realistic in
the short term, but I can do a single "tn5250" PowerPC binary.
