Miller et al,
      Once I get Pd built on OSX, I can make install so that "pd" from 
the terminal will launch it.

But how do I make it into an App?  Any hints?  INSTALL.txt doesn't have 

I'd like to get it building so that a) I can make use of all the goodies 
someone put into
AppMain.tcl and b) post a working copy so people can try out the new 
Preferences dialog.

Separate question: even for running "pd" from the terminal, why doesn't 
the AppMain.tcl stuff
get used?  For example, I still want to use the OSX "Preferences" panel, 
and set all the Apple
specific stuff like "About Pd" in the App menu, regardless of how pd was 
started.  (Though it's
not a huge deal, as the vast majority would just be running the app.)
