I’ve created https://abcde.einval.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=40 and https://abcde.einval.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=41 for the internal-to-abcde stuff I ran into and needed to tweak for Mac OS X, including patches. (Two separate “bugs”, since the curl thing isn’t really OS-dependent.)

That’s in flight now: https://trac.macports.org/ticket/52122

Incidentally, MacPorts didn’t have an assigned maintainer for abcde, so I’ve listed myself (using their “openmaintainer” syntax, which essentially means “hey, if somebody else wants to fix broken things about this port, go for it!”). I guess if one of you guys want to get in the business of being responsible for keeping software distributions other than Debian’s (and Slackware’s?) up to date on abcde, I’m happy to cede that, but I’m guessing you’re not looking for extra work on that front. :^>
