I am/was compiling my version of MC. I have two intel based mac's. A mini and a powerbook. Both are running the same version of the OS.

There was an issue where some of the keystrokes were not working in MC. Someone on their mailing list said that keystrokes were controlled by slang. Most all of the keys were working, however.

I was having a problem, that may have been related to pkgconfig, with 2.3.0, so i thought i mihght try 2.2.4. Things seemed to work now. But there is still an issue with keystrokes, so i'm thinking i need to uninstall all the slang libs and start again.

fwiw, i know that 2.30 DOES work. My mac mini, the compile and install of mc, went without a hitch. (I had at somepoint installed slang and the other needed parts for mc, on this machine.

This helps a lot, thanks!
