Thanks Pierre.

We made a little progress on getting tests to compile this afternoon:

Absolutely not ready for a pull request, but mentioning it in case anyone
else was starting on the same task and wanted to collaborate.

      It's limping along.  We've managed to run a few programs

      I think the next step is actually to get the test suite to compile &
      build so we can see what functionally isn't working yet.

      Pierre and Daniel, we could use some guidance on how to approach
      this.  The tests have quite a few unguarded includes of mach header
      files, uses of mach types, and includes of Foundation.  How would you
      like this porting to proceed?  Hubertus has already done some initial
      poking at it, but getting direction on the intended outcome would be
      very helpful.

We do have an internal test-suite that we can’t share because it rely on
internal Apple infrastructure. I haven’t closed the loop with Daniel
completely on this but our position I think is that these should be made
portable even if that means dropping anything mach related stuff by hiding
it behind a #if __APPLE__ or similar.
