"ld" on the Mac doesn't support that linker option (it's -M). You
could conditionalize it. But I didn't see the point of generating a
link map for the simulator program, anyway.

Good idea. Go for it.

Yep, bubbles didn't build cleanly, and I didn't want to figure out why. You
could remove that patch.

I'd just take those out of the patch. Good catch.

I'll spend a little time trying to figure out the audio problem, but I
don't need it for my application, so can't promise anything.
