I haven't patched the entire front end, only the PQconnectdb function 
works at the moment.

Most of the changes involve replacing the standard Unix headers with 
their Mac counter parts. Some functions have to be written from 
scratch or ported from Unix, like strdup for example.
The biggest source of pain is that Mac just doesn't have all the 
libraries that Unix does. Sigh.

It is going to be a BIG job, which is why I was hoping someone else 
had done it already.

Oh well, I guess I'll plod along. I'll build it as a CodeWarrior 
project for Mac with a target of "library" if that's alright?

Any words of wisdom on best ways to do this?
