I don't think anyone really knows, that's the problem.  It's not  
related to compiling.  You need use Rez to somehow install the mac.r

but beyond that I don't really know.

Apple usually has decent docs, it just takes some digging :)

All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies,  
one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better  
language; and every chapter must be so translated.... -John Donne
