If the problem is only Mapnik, I can give a hand porting it. Usually it's
easy :)

I'm already planning to package both OSM world coastline and various Natural
Earth shapefiles. They can be handy for TileMill too (see ITP #644767)

That said, I'm not having particular technical issues with those shapefiles --
just not enough time. But I don't see them as a prioritary task, so I guess
they can wait a bit more :)
