Hey guys, the PPC build of Angband 3.0.9 gives me the following error when run:

Cannot create the '/var/root/Library/Preferences/Angband/scores/scores.raw' file!

The 'lib' directory is probably missing or broken. Perhaps the archive was not extracted correctly. See the 'readme.txt' file for more information.
As far as I can tell, it's compiled wrong or something. The path should be '~/Library/Preferences/Angband/scores/scores.raw'. I mean it's no wonder it can't write to /var without root privileges.

(To say nothing of the fact I'm on an Intel Mac, and would also like to know how to make a UB version.)

Heh, odd. I tested this on both 'standard' and 'admin' accounts on both intel and PPC macs when I compiled it (and again just now). In all four cases, angband put the score, save, etc. files exactly where it should be in '~/Library/Preferences/Angband/...'. I'm on a Intel Core Duo, 2GHz, Macbook Pro, OS 10.4.9 and works fine.

Figuring out how to do a UB build is on my list of things to do, but I suspect that I don't really know enough about macs and/or compiling to make one. I'll look into it one of these days.
