I synthetic port to BSD/OS X sounds interesting. How similar are the
system calls? Can you just write a i386bsd, or do you have to modify
the HAL arch as well?

This is only in ecosCentric's closed source port :-( A shame really,
libsupc++.a regularly causes problems for synth, so being able to get
rid of this dependancy would be good.
