MisterP: The UNIX version of PrBooM is based on SDL. Port that to Panther, don't bother with Carbon. It is relatively easy, the biggest problems you will have are linker differences and learning how to build app bundles and such. A port such as this (SDL based software that's already cross-platform) should take someone experienced a few hours at best, a weekend at worst. BTW, SDL's Quartz output for OS X is on top of Cocoa, not Carbon. You can use this to your advantage to make a nice set of menus and such (since Cocoa is infinitely easier than Carbon) for your port once you have it working.
