Compiling SDL 1.3 SVN framework for Mac OS X

Are the Xcode project files for SDL 1.3 not regularly updated in the
SVN repository? The project file SDL.xcodeproj located in Xcode/SDL
has numerous pointers to missing or outdated files, generates
numerous compiling errors, and seems to be a complete mess that it
won’t compile any of the targets under any of the build configurations.

I’m currently trying to build SDL as a framework for Mac OS X that I
can just drop into the /Library/Frameworks/ folder, but due to all
the problems I am completely unable to do so. (Another app that I’m
trying to get to run has problems with SDL 1.2, and I’m told a fix
for the bug is in SDL 1.3, only I can’t get it to compile.)

Any ideas on when these project files will be updated so the
framework can be built directly from source without any modifications?

Thanks for any pointers.

Sorry. I’m one of the few people that touch the Xcode projects and I
don’t keep up with the day-to-day work in SVN. The last time I updated
the 1.3 projects was maybe 6 months ago. I’ll try to look at this
again soon, but if you don’t want to wait, you’re always free to fix
it up yourself and submit back the changes.

While working on the keyboard stuff, I’ve brought the SDL Xcode project
into a state that seems to be up to par with the configure/make method,
as far as I have checked. I’ve also made some incremental adjustments to
the SDLTest project. If Sam gets around to giving me SVN access I can
check them in, or I’ll just post them here. Have to double-check that
all my modifications make sense for a release and are not just local
hacks before, though.
