To be precise:

> XCode 2.4.x (if want to build externals on Mac OS X)

(At least it exists now - when I last posted to this list in despair 
(09/10/2015 18:45), it had gone missing altogether.)

On a slightly adjusted topic - one of those questions I've been feeling too 
stupid to ask but would really appreciate - is there anyway an explanation of 
the differences and relationships between:
	- widgets
	- libraries
	- externals
	- plugins
