Ok, i'll give it a go. It will be my first attempt at doing this and I
know i'm going to have issues because I can't get spectrwm sources to
compile on my Lion machine. I've used the forum to let
them know, and they've released 2 or 3 versions since I did that but
they don't seem interested in porting the code to the Mac OS X platform.
In the source code there is information about compiling on Leopard 10.5
but that's all there is relating to OS X.
