Ok, last time I checked it was quite a pain to compile. If you have
some tips / instructions on how to get this stack to work I would be
happy to add that to the website.

Hmm, didn't think of that. I think mac has a generic "open" command
isn't it? If you add a desktop file for that to share/zim/applications
it should work (similar to the one we have there for xdg-open). Those
desktop files are zim specific, so no need for generic XDG support on
mac for this.

If you open a bug report for this I'll make sure it gets fixed.
