Daniel, Fernando and other people did some work on compiling it on
windows. It did compile, but was just missing the generation of DLLs (it
generated .so on cygwin). Once that is done, I think everything should
basically work. So if you want to give it a try, please do it.

About MacOS, I guess it should not be difficult at all to do it on MacOS
X at least.

wow, that would be really great! I just started the provider given that
some people had expressed interest in having a xbase backend, but didn't
go too far away. So, if you help us on that, that would be super-cool
:-) I haven't really even tested the provider, since I didn't have any
xbase file, and forgot to ask people to send me some.

So please, the job is all yours :-)
