RepSnapper for OSX Binaries

Repsnapper is the new-kid-on-the-block software for controlling your RepRap.    It slices, it dices, it juliennes.  Ok, so it's not bad. 

Anyway, compiling it all was a bit of a hassle, so here they are:

About RepSnapper:

Initially the source code came from: svn checkout

( newer commits have been done here , but we have not compiled from there yet)

How to do what I did ( compile on OSX ):

( read the ReadMe.MacOSX.txt in the source! )

Hints , for only if you want to compile it yourself: 
* compiling on x86_64 ( aka Leopard ) is a bit more hassle, but adding "-arch i386" to the CFLAGS and LDFLAGS in the Makefile/s forces it to compile in i386 mode, which is more compatible anyway.
* I use 'brew' not macports, and install it to /opt/homebrew.  'brew install fltk glut'  works. 'brew link fltk glut' may be needed.  Edit the Src/Makefile and set MACPORTS_DIR=/opt/homebrew
* create a r/w .dmg package with diskutility, mount it, copy the binary into the right spot, unmount it, and convert it to r/o.
