[vlc-devel] Problem building 0.8.6i on Intel Mac Mini

I'm trying to build vlc 0.8.6i on my Intel Mac Mini (Intel Core Single,
OS/X 10.5, XCode 3.1), and followed the OS/X build instructions from the
developer website.  I would like to end up with a Universal Binary that
runs on OS/X 10.3, 10.4 and 10.5.

When building the contrib libraries, the bootstrap script did not have a
$HOST case for my "i686-apple-darwin9" environment.  I hacked one from the
case for i686-apple-darwin8, setting the SDK_TARGET to "10.5" and
MACOSX_SDK to "/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk".  Is this the correct thing
to do?

I managed to "make src", with a couple of small hacks:

- libpng had a problem with major (0) /minor (  version settings,
 I set them to "0" and "0.29", respectively.
- libdvdcss: needed to run bootstrap manually.

I was then able to run bootstrap, configure with the recommended options
from the build instructions, and make.  The resulting vlc will load and
hang.  No menu options are displayed.

Can anyone point me in the right direction to get a successful build.
