i tried once to build JVLC on mac but i didn't succeed. unfortunately  
i have no knowledge about how to deal with JNI. you cannot just take  
the windows or linux makefile, you rather have to know how DLLs work  
(or on Mac how dynlibs(?) work). i now java very well, but C++ almost  
not at all. the JVLC developer can't help me as he's not familiar  
with Mac OS X. seems that most VLC folks are on windows or linux. i  
keep trying ...

best, -sciss-
