“This project is an attempt to bring a Linux/Unix like development environment to the MacOS X platform. We believe that the Macintosh operating system has alot of potential and would like to help it reach it’s potential. These libraries are not only compiled for MacOS X but are provided in a convienent form as a MacOS X Distribution Installer Package. This unfortunately means that the package is only compatible with MacOS X 10.4 Tiger. The Installer Package contains the following (and more): Sandalous Software’s (partial) XML toolkit; Subversion 1.3.0; GTK+ 2.8; Glade-2; GNOME 2.12; Mono 1.1.14; and MonoDevelop 0.10.”

Sounds good. Gnome apps recompiled as native GUI, rather than going via X11 would be excellent.
It is nice to have X11 but a pain to have to alternate between GUI patterns.
As for only being compatible with Tiger; remember Leopard is due out in a few months; at which point Apple will turn their back on Panther.
Personally a Universal Binary is a more useful priority.
