Compling FinkCommander

On the way to get an acceptable mail client (kmail) on Mac OSX, I installed fink and updated to unstable tree and did run selfupdate-cvs. After the update FinkCommander neither the version shipped by fink 0.8 nor the latest binary package did run anymore.

So I decided to build it from cvs and installed the recent XCode compiler and SDK packages (2.3):

$ cvs -d:pserver:anonymous@finkcommander.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/finkcommander login
$ cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@finkcommander.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/finkcommander co -P .
$ open FinkCommander/FinkCommander.xcodeproj

XCode will start and in the Project menu set Active Build Configuration to Deployment and in the Build menu select Build. After some time the build will be finished, you need to find the FinkCommnader.app and copy it to your Programm folder. Thats it! (-;
