Hmmm,  thanks Bert!
I'll have a root around.
Another thouight was, seeing as its portmidi, there is an existing xcode
project and an existing makefile
either of which can assemble the library from scratch.
But  weaving the page-long library makefile into a mac intel  plugin build
appears an even knottier problem....
