how about a 'snowleopardfixes' library port?

Yeah - that idea certainly works. Adding this in the portfile:

configure.ldflags-append "-lsnowleopardfixes"
configure.cxxflags-append -include ${prefix}/include/libsnowleopardfixes.h

and lnav builds without touching a single line of code in the port.

Just wrap that up in a Darwin 10 block, and it would appear to be done.

I'll build a Makefile and a portfile for this, and perhaps others can try it out if they wish to.
