How do things work on Mac OS X ?and Windows ? Shall we install a  
"system one" using respectively Fink/Darwin port , Cygwin ?

FYI, OOo4Kids and OOoLight uses dmake too. Maybe this could help to  
build on Mac OS X and on Windows probably ? (see below)

Maybe a crazy idea, but what about download dmake sources from  
Adullact repo ?

Try (in main) :  svn co svn:// 

The good is this dmake version is directly usable everywhere. The bad  
is that you mix two svn sources (maybe not realistic ... ?)

Last but not least, Adullact is one big French non profit  
association, working close to french administration, reliable and  
with high ethical objectives. What about ask Adullact to host some  
problematic sources ?
