According to the Darwin developer list, people are working on porting it to
the x86 Linux, so that version should easily be able to bring to the PowerPC
with some work. Here are some messages regrading this:

QTFileLib is easy to compile, altough not all things work right.

I'm thinking of changing the current way of having defines for each OS into
an autoconf - generated header. Unfortunately, I know nothing about how to
use autoconf.

As to the Server, I think it's best to build new makefiles. I think I'm
gonna use the GNUstep-make package, it seem suited to converstion of PB

Unfortunately, my spare time is small also. But I intend to do something
over the next two weeks.

Anybody else interested?
