[rescue] The Machine Emulator (TME) on a Mac?

Out of curiousity, I decided to see if I could build it...

One issue is that the Makefiles tell the compiler to treat Warnings as
Errors (-Werror).

Another is the file ic/ieee754/ieee754-misc-auto.c  Apparently, this file
is generated by a non-portable shell script as it creates lines in the file
which start with "-n". Removing the "-n"s allows that file to compile.

Line 766 of host/gtk/gtk-keyboard.c is a bit of a WTF of preprocessor
defines. You can probably just remove the #ifndef and #endif lines.

At that point it compiles and installs, but at that point I can't get it to
load any of the dynamic modules.
