Shouldn't there be only one ? The unix build uses Quartz, has a
standard menu bar and window, so it's already a little Mac-like, no ?
Mac OS **is** a unix, it just has access to a few more libraries than
traditional BSDs, and the VM should be wrapped in a .app bundle
instead of a /usr/local hierarchy... What reasons make the actual mac
VM different from my uninformed intuition?

I like the Gold VM because the .app behaves more like a correct Mac
application (it can open several images for instance), but it doesn't
have UnixOSProcess...

That would be the job of autoconf ?
