Thanks Kish.

I'm really only concerned with getting it to compile currently, not the 3rd
party features - I'll try to deal with those later.

The 6.0#183 binary on SourceForge does work on OS X 10.8.

Here's the compiling output that includes references to libeclipse.dylib:

Like Paulo I have a libeclipse.a in the Kernel/x86_64_macosx directory.
 Looks like the problem is the "-L" before the "-o libeclipse.dylib".

If anyway can put together how the SourceForge binaries were compiled that
would be nice.
