I've gotten zmsg (which sends private messages via zaddr->zaddr transaction in the 512 byte memo field) to work, even though it has ~/zcash hardcoded with:
ln -s ~/zcash ~/Library/Application\ Support/Zcash
I'm working to get rid of needing Brew as a dependency for binary only installs...I need to package up wget and flock with any libraries they need, but I've been hesitant to do so as it might stomp on someone's existing wget installation. I could write an installation script that checks for them and only installs them if needed, which would also make it less likely to mess up permissions on /usr/local, which may be changed when un-taring the binary.
Also, if there's any way you could toss even a small donation in btc, zec or fiat our way, that'd be great, I'm stuck between milestones on one consulting contract waiting on UI people to do stuff, and negotiating terms on another, so until all that get's squared away I'm dependent on donations for my porting work to survive!
