[PD] using alternative preference files

Try the new app maker on the Mac OS X builds, you'll need a very  
recent build otherwise it has a bug in it that prevents it from  
working.  It'll automatically create a .app with your name, and  
include an embedded prefs file.

I haven't touched -nogui on Mac OS X in a very long time.  I  
basically only use Debian for running real projects, especially  
installations.  I only use Mac OS X for the mundane day-to-day things  
like email, calendar, palm pilot syncing, etc.

Using ReBirth is like trying to play an 808 with a long stick.    -
