Thank you, I'm testing and integrating it into upcoming R8B-1.

This is very frustrating. A space in the expression

  +'{preproc_flags,"-D_CORBA_ -I ${IC_DIR}/include"}'

makes it fail. We have rewritten most of these constructs but I can't
figure out how to rewrite this one without a space. In the internal
source here the file "mnesia_corba_session.idl" is just a soft link to
"mnesia_session.idl". If we split to two files we can remove the
symbol _CORBA_ and use

  +'{preproc_flags,"-I${IC_DIR}/include"}'

With this change mnesia_session compiles. I don't like it but I will
do this change.

If we just could get GS going without installing X we have a very 
nice Mac OS X port,
