Yes, I discontinued it, as I got tired of updating it all the time, as it was
stated that the branch is never going to get merged anyway.
Back when I started the branch, there were some severe bugs with autoconf +
libtool, preventing compilation completely (libtool would always try to mix
flags that exclude each other). I asked back then and nobody cared at all about
finding a solution and nobody had a veto when I said I was going to change the
buildsys, as that seemed the most easy way back then.
But nowadays, everybody complains I changed the buildsys, there were demands I
port it back to autotools etc. I got tired of all that and abandoned the port.

See the above problems. Basically, you need to look for all source changes in
the OS X branch, port them to the default branch and fix automake and libtool.
Then again, Gtk on OS X is still a PITA. A PITA that huge that I actually
switched back to Adium and only start Gajim for server administration (Adium's
support of Ad-hoc commands is painful).
