Do you have a "proper package" for your "gtk-osx native version", or do
you compile from sources (using jhbuild)?
I compile from source with jhbuild, and I don't like to do it often because the source seems pretty unstable. I try to avoid MacPorts due to libiconv incompatibilities. Trying to use Haskell + gtk+ on OSX is a huge mess; wxWidgets doesn't look any better or I'd switch. One of these days I should try QT, except I don't want to learn yet another widget framework.
I don't have any experience making packages on OS X, but a proper package for gtk-osx would be very useful. If anyone wanted to offer suggestions I would consider trying to bundle one up. I am surprised you would have trouble building packages on 10.6 that also work on 10.5; I thought that 10.4/10.5 was a much larger change.
