I made a small deviation from that. Instead of adding all files, I added
precompiled jigsaw.zip file that was found in classes subdirectory.  I had
only two files in my project. One was classes.zip with a weak link and
another jigsaw.zip with no weak link. ( I don't know what that is, but when
I tried weak link on both it would not work)

With my change, make was a matter of several seconds. Of course If I want
to edit anything, I would have to add all the files :-}.

I had this too, so it means it worked. However after it I started receiving
errors. The easiest was about cannot open .jigidx files and a deep stack of
exceptions. I went with one of the previous mails and tried to rename all
.jigidx files to Wjigidx files and adding w3c.jigsaw.root.store=Wjigidx
property   It worked for a bit(2 pages?) and then died. I am not sure if
that happened because of steps I took in the wrong order or some other
reason, but I am a bit stuck in here. I will try it again later, maybe I
will be more lucky if I will rename all of the .jigidx files and setting
property before the first run.

If anybody was able to make Jigsaw run completely and properly on Mac,
please write to the list.

It sure is. I am surprised how Anselm alone managed to pull it off so far.
Must be practice... :-}

Still digging,
