[SDL] C code for multiple windows with IPC

This is off topic and on-topic in a roundabout way.
I was looking into making Jeff's interprocess SDL code run on Mac OS X,
and figured it would be simple since his code uses standard calls.
However, headers like sys/msg.h, mqueue.h are not available on OSX!
Reading through Apple's documentation, I found that "Interprocess
communication is in a state of transition". About the only IPC facility
available is signal.h
Do any programmers familiar with OSX/mach have knowledge about this? It
seems like there has to be something at a lower level than cocoa's
Again, I realize this is more suited for an OSX mailing list, but since
I was investigating for a SDL-related project I thought I'd start here.
