It's mostly buildable with a bit of tweaking. I sent out a patch which made
some more of it buildable some time ago, which I also attach here.

Some of the libraries still don't build - you just need to touch
lib/mnesia_session-.../SKIP or whatever when one breaks and start again.

Yes, very well. They need to be named not x_drv.dyld but apart from
that they work fine.

Well, it seems pretty snappy running wings3d. I've never run any benchmarks.

Good luck
