Yeah, we haven't had a Mac dev for quite some while now, so we might
have introduced incompatibilities without noticing.

This suggestion is good for several reasons:
* If upstream already has build problems for your platform, fixes
should be contributed there, so everyone can easily profit.
* We are starting development of Kokua again from LL's latest sources.
The first step, I think, will be to get them building for all of us
on the platforms we want to use. Once we've achieved that, we should
maintain buildability on these platforms while making more changes.
Even if you (Han or others reading this) don't plan to develop any
changes yourself, just building the viewer on (and for) Mac and
reporting when that breaks would be highly appreciated!
* There's currently an ongoing thread on opensource-dev
(upstream's mailing list) about building on Lion. Maybe you can find
some valuable information there, or contribute with noteworthy
information of your own.
Thanks for your interest!

list. It helps readers to quickly grasp what message is about what
topic, which is important when several discussions are happening
concurrently or when searching something in the archive. Thanks.
