P9p native UI for OS X

Among many other improvements, the latest Plan 9 from User Space (aka plan9port) has support for native OS X graphics so you don’t need to install X11 anymore.

All you need to do is do an hg pull (and update) and re-run the ./INSTALL script. If for some reason you want to use X11 graphics (for example if you want to do ssh/X forwarding) create the file $PLAN9/LOCAL.config with the contents:

WSYSTYPE=x11

And rebuild your p9p tree.

As usual, all credit goes to the tireless Russ Cox.
