yeah, I'm ok with abandoning it.  project builder is a huge pain
in the butt to work with, worse even than microsoft's IDEs.  as
soon as I got it building the unix way I stopped keeping it up to

to xcode?

ok, I didn't know about that.  I'll try getting that to work on
my ibook and then check it in.
