Well i surely don't want to mislead anybody.
What's wrong with gtkmm on OS X then?

it has no support for the native drawing system (Cocoa), only for X11 on
OS X, which for most people is somewhere between an inconvenience and
"may as well not exist". this is quite different from the win32
situation, where you can use gtk/gtkmm to create "native-looking"

it may improve in the not too distant future - somebody has finally made
some real progress with a port of GDK to aqua, but its not there yet.

hmm.. doesn't sound like a big problem to me but i will take your word for it.
Sounds like leaving out OS X is as misleading as leaving it in.

What if i change MacOS X (gcc) to MacOS X (gcc, X11),
can you live with that?, does that even make sense?

Since i'm not familiar with OS X i will follow your recommendation on this.
