Sounds good.  I'll try it out.

I did need to install pkg-config to get past the check that you 
mentioned.  I fed it the option "-I /usr/local", thinking that it 
wanted the root of the install, but re-reading the message I see that 
it wants the complete path to pkg.m4.  I guess I should have paid more 

Now I get this error:
configure: error: Library requirements (xrender >= 0.6) not met; 
consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your 
libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

I don't have an xrender.pc file anywhere on my system.  My X server, 
however, does support the render extension, as "xdpyinfo | grep RENDER" 

Since my goal is to build on quartz (potentially without X) I can live 
without X support, though it would be nice for testing.  Building 
--without-x, I run into the problem that I haven't build/installed slim 
yet, so I guess I'm on the right track.  Ok, time to do some package 
installation... :-)
