Dear listers,

This message is probably NOT useful for anyone who succeeded in 
compiling the latest BioCocoa version from our  CVS server. However, 
for people new to the project, this might be of interest:

If you experience problems when compiling the latest version of BC, 
make sure you install the Mac OS 10.2.x and Mac OS 10.3.x SDKs from the 
Xcode CD. I don't think these SDKs are installed by default. However, 
they are required to properly compile BC.

After installing them, make sure that BioCocoa links to the right SDK 
in the Xcode project:
- Select the BioCocoa target from the list of targets
- Click Get Info and then select the build tab
- Make sure the SDKROOT property points to a valid SDK path

That should fix any (pre)compiler errors.
Maybe we could add this to the HTML dev documentation?

Many thanks to Alex who provided me with the solution to this problem!
