But this project seems pretty involved to get, lets say, inkscape to run with quartz rather than x11. I really want to do this but my head starts to spin when I see all the steps I have to go through to do it. I meet the system requirements and have the developer kit. I am hoping any helpful hints or direction to cut out steps in this task.  am hoping for a drag and drop app that allows you to drop inkscape or gimp into it and it magically creates this re-compiled quartz version. I am probably grabbing for straws here :)

Indeed. This project is an extension of Gtk for (e.g.) the inkscape developers to prepare a bundle to distribute their package to OSX users. You may have the necessary tools assembled, but you don't have the training or experience, and a fair amount of both is needed. You can either spend a few years learning, or you can go bug the inkscape folks to do it.

Good luck.
