    I don't know about anybody else, but i'm lost without MC as my file manager. After pulling my hair out with failed builds i managed to modify tigerbrews recipe enough to get an older version to build. It will work on Leopard, and possibly Tiger (untested). Hopefully it's of use to someone else besides me. ;-)

    Use ESC+1 through 0 in place of the F1 through F10 keys.

    Excellent :)
    I'm getting these errors (on Leopard) - guessing the help file not installed?

    Ahhh... good catch. It seems you are correct. I will patch that up and upload a new installer in the next day or so when i get some time. Thanks.

    It's all pretty straight forward to get by without help anyway. Thanks for this, great that this kind of work still goes on.
    Oh and if anyone installs this and wonders where the app is, you run it from Terminal, typing mc.

    Fixed version has been added to main post. File was too large to upload here. Sorry for the tinyupload link.

    Foxlet: any issues with it not finding libssh2 during ./configure? Even if i put the path for libssh2 in manually it kept failing to find it, even though it's built.

    Cheers

    No, I did not encounter that.

    Anyways, here's that build:
