hello limpingninja :)
I appreciate the feedback, this upload was primarily meant to hopefully make it easier for you to build your own FB, if anyone should upload a Mac binary to GitHub would be either coderJeff or TeeEmCee

If there is a binary package that is worthwhile to publish, I'm sure we could find a place to put it.

Otherwise, I think TeeEmCee knows about this stuff as it relates to fb better than anyone I know.

Mac/darwin/powerpc/etc is all foreign to me, I don't have any hardware, and never had much luck setting up an emulator for anything that might help develop fb on this platform. I spent a bunch of time on trying, but didn't have the skillz to get anywhere useful with it.

I agree that TeeEmCee is the one qualified for a Mac release
I have seen videos about installing Mac OS in a VM in Linux, and it just might work as they claim but I am not gutsy enough to do it, it clearly violates the Apple license, the script they mentioned was sosumi which I guess stands for "so sue me"

Thank you to srvaldez for the binaries! I switched to a MacBook Air a few years back and after a few attempts at using a Linux VM to run FB I gave up and stopped using FB for awhile.

Is there a git branch for porting RtLib or GfxLib to MacOS that would take contributions? I'd love to be contribute

Do you think the BSD version works on macOS as well?
