Update to current pkgsrc 22 June 2006 or later.
Attempt to build cad/qcad on MacOS X 10.4.6 (and probably 10.3.9).
The file:


contains explicit MacOS X-specific references which are not appropriate
when built through pkgsrc.

The following patch, ironically, permits the build to complete

When run, qcad seems to operate ok.  The opening splash window's
listboxes for "GUI Language" and "Command Language" are blank and
elicit the following messages on stderr:

    QComboBox::changeItem: (cbLanguage) Index 0 out of range
    QComboBox::changeItem: (cbLanguageCmd) Index 0 out of range

On subsequent runs, the Preferences editor (Edit->Preferences) also
shows blank list/combo boxes for "GUI Language" and "Command Language"
but do not elicit any output on stderr.

It is not clear if these are related to issues addressed by the
above workaround.  No further testing beyond launching the program
has been attempted so far.
