    I tried compiling kexi on Mac OSX. With a few minor tweaks (which may have been wrong) I did get it to compile, but the resulting executables crash immediately. I am happy to provide error messages and code diffs if someone thinks they can help me get it up and running. Is there anyone, and should I post in the forum, or report these through the bug tracker?
