      I've patched mtftar to build on Mac OS X. The code can be found on GitHub:

      I just recently stumbled across this project in a search to find a way to resurrect some of my documents and data from a USB backup drive that I had thankfully done a recent backup on before my XP machine died.

      I am now working on a Mac OS 10.5 laptop with XCode installed, but I can't seem to get this to build properly. There seem to be some dependencies I can't get right? Any advice?

      Nice utility, worked flawlessly.

      I'm trying to package this into a .deb package, but there is no configure script. Is there a generic configure script I can use for this? I am building in Ubuntu 9.04, AMD 64 version. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!
