excellent. i have it working now. here's a quick report from the trenches.

a close reading of ivan porres's email from 9/12/2k2 gives basic instructions 
on installing the nesc. dependencies (x11, qt via fink) and alteration of the 
makefiles for pyqt builds. for those who are interested there is a qt3.1 fink 
package in fink cvs (under experimental/rangerrick). 

building qscintilla required adding in nonzero version and dependency info to 
the compile options in the makefile. (i built as a dynamic library)

i now have eric up and running on osx. :-)

many thanks,
