Sorry that I forgot to reply to your earlier message.

A non-carbon MzScheme build is probably not too difficult. The MzScheme
code doesn't rely much (if any, in OS 9 mode) on the Carbon library.

What happens if you remove every "#include <Carbon.h>" (there should be
only 2 or 3), adjust the makefile link line, and then try to build?

I'm hoping that there's just one or two snags where I can help. I won't
have time in the next few weeks to try it myself.
