Hengband for Mac OS X

In earlier threads about Hengband,
https://hengband.osdn.jp/en/
, like this one,
http://angband.oook.cz/forum/showthread.php?t=7755
, there were requests for an up-to-date English Mac OS X version.

I've put together one based on the current (2.2.1.7) sources from
https://osdn.net/projects/hengband
You can find the binary here:
http://ebranlun.users.sonic.net/HengbandOSX.html

The hope is that the binary will run on Mac OS X 10.7 or later. I only have ready access to a 10.14 system so any tales of success or failure with earlier versions would be appreciated. Also any feedback about what does not work well in the Mac interface would be welcomed - especially any glitches with the graphics or how things like keymaps or macros interact with how the interface passes keystrokes to the game.

The source code for the changes made can be found at the same site with the binary. None of this would have been possible without the source code for Hengband and code from poschengband and Angband. The contributors to those three projects did all the hard work.
