Will do. Just to let you know I am about to hit the road for 9 weeks
which means my access to large amounts of bandwidth may be somewhat
variable which may impede my progress on this task somewhat.

My plan at this stage is to try building it with XCode 4.1 which I
have fetched and am starting to unpack as I discover things I need
such as gcc-4.2 etc. Once I am done, I will write up what I needed to
