Actually, Max has helpd out, and built an .app of Tux Paint 0.9.14 from CVS
this afternoon. It has two bugs that I notice right off, though:
Mouse pointer is wonky
(I set context-sensitive 32x32 pointer shapes using an SDL call;
I remember previous Mac builds had scaled the pointer to 16x16,
so I’m assuming it’s due to the same bug that Darrell avoided by scaling)
The new ‘Starter’ images don’t appear. Probably a path problem.
Probably fixable with some #ifdef’s (as we’re currently doing for
Linux and Win32). These are immutable images which appear in the 'Open’
dialog, and are used to start a new drawing (in a coloring-book-fashion).
In case you (or anyone else) feels like helping, you can grab the
’tuxpaint’ module (and ‘tuxpaint-stamps’, which will also need a separate
installer .app download) from SourceForge CVS. [*] See:
I encourage anyone interested in helping the project (Mac OS X or otherwise)
to subscribe to the ‘tuxpaint-dev’ mailing list. See:
Finally, the other thing Max didn’t have time to look at, and which is
off-topic on this list, is the new FTLK-based 'Tux Paint Config’
configuration GUI tool for parents/teachers. (“tuxpaint-config” CVS module)
As the current Tux Paint for Mac OS X (and Max’s build of 0.9.14 from CVS)
are simple double-clickable ‘.app’ bundles, I’m thinking that
Tux Paint Config for Mac OS X will need to be its own separate ‘.app’ download.
(Since it’s so useful to folks used to only using GUIs, we’re actually
including “Tux Paint Config”'s EXE with Tux Paint for Win32.)
[*] Oh, and also, the fonts for certain locales (Japanese, Hebrew,
Korean, etc.) should be packaged as ‘.app’ installers, like the Stamps
collection. Though at this point, I think including all of the smaller
TTFs right in Tux Paint 0.9.14 for OS X would be find. However, a few
of the fonts are multiple megabytes in size, even after compression,
so we’ll definitely want a separate download for those, as we’ve been
doing for the source and Win32 releases.
Thanks for the offer to help!

I’ll do it, just point me at the source code and I’ll give you a .app
