This patch:

It is tested under OSX.  The locations of the 'Extensions' directory
under Linux and Windows needs to be decided.  Under Linux perhaps
'/usr/local/share/SuperCollider/Extensions' and

Looking over these files it seems like it should be possible for the
OSX version of sclang to also use SC_TerminalClient, which would make
the SC_LibraryConfig system available there also.  The 'Extensions'
directories could then be added as initial entries in that system.

Some other comments (mainly related to #ifdef):

1) libraryConfig.cpp and libraryConfig.h seem not to be used.
   SC_LibraryConfig is used instead.  These files could perhaps be

2) With three platforms supported now perhaps various of the platform
   switches could be moved into a 'platform' file or directory.  The
   procedures sc_DirectoryExists, sc_GetUserHomeDirectory and
   sc_AppendToPath could go there, also bzero, vsnprintf, closesocket,
   socklen_t, nanosleep and sc_StandardizePath.

3) Perhaps the special case for fopen "rb" is not neccessary
   (ie. under unices "r" and "rb" are equivalent).

4) The ENABLE_LIBRARY_CONFIGURATOR switch is not required as
   gLibraryConfig is otherwise NULL.

5) Perhaps as gInternalSynthServer.mWorld is initialize to NULL the
   #ifdef is not required.

I could do work in these directions if people think any of them a good



Other possible entries at 'platform':

#ifdef SC_WIN32
inline void bzero(void *b, size_t len)
	memset(ptr, 0, count);

#ifndef SC_WIN32
int closesocket(int fd)
	return close(fd);

#ifdef SC_WIN32
typedef int socklen_t;

#ifdef SC_WIN32
#define vsnprintf _vsnprintf
