As I see it the 2.3 branch contains none of your MacOS/Run time abstraction work. So you are suggesting I try to bug fix it enough to get an old style X11-blt, swarm-libobjc version to build in at least ppc and i386 architectures?

I will have a look but it will need a FSF compiler because all the current ones have -fgnuruntime broken.

I would like to try to get an Apple runtime build working.

Those are tags I've been using to delineate code that needed to be rewritten for the objc runtime abstraction layer. In some cases, it is just a simple change from one function call to another, but in other cases I had to rewrite the code to use the API versus working directly with the underlying data structures. I would surround those regions with the TODO tag, then once I rewrote the code I would switch it to the DONE tag. That way I could change one section at a time then compile/test/etc.

Note, if you are wanting to use the stable Swarm, i.e. the last public release, you should use the Swarm-2_3 branch. And actually if you wanted to try out your Mac build using GNU and tcl/tk with Snow Leopard, you should commit any patches to that branch.
