MacOS X users get together!

Basically we have to fix things in the following order:

1. make dfu-util work so that we can flash the rootfs from a Mac

1b. write a GUI tool that presents the list of available flash files  
and allows to download, cache and (re)flash them

2. update AJZaurusUSB ( 
page=AJZaurusUSB) so that the OpenMoko is recognized (and no Apple  
CDC Ethernet driver intervenes)

This is basically done (but not tested because step 1 is missing).

A short description is here: 
MacOS_X#USB or here 

3. find out how to configure ssh, SMB, Bluetooth etc. for more  
sophisticated communication

4. find a better way to run OpenEmbedded natively on a Mac. I already  
had started the MacOE project ( 
page=MacOE) but did not yet succeed.
