OSX Snow Leopard - ScriptBasic Installer

Quote from: Armando I. Rivera (AIR)
I wanted to see if SB would work under OSX Lion, and ran into a bunch of issues getting it to compile.  I wasn't able to work those out fully, so instead I compiled it under Snow Leopard.  Note that for maximum compatibility, I compiled it for 32bit.

One of the things that's always bugged me about SB's "installer" is the fact that by default the System bin and lib folders are used.  For any add-on, /usr/local should be used.  So I reconfigured SB to do just that.

One thing you will find is that without a proper installer, most Mac users won't bother trying it out.  Since I had to test a new package installer program for work, I decided to create a proper Mac installer for SB.  I placed the installer within a DMG file, which is like an ISO under other OS's, which Macs can mount directly with a double-click.

The installed folder structure looks like this:
Code: [Select]
/usr/local
   --bin
     --scriba
     --sbhttpd
  --lib
    --scriba
  --share
    --scriba
      --examples
      --include
      --source
      --Script Basic User Guide.pdf

/etc
  --scriba
    --basic.conf
