I now succeeded to compile a Mac binary on the macOS CI runners provided
by GitHub. Not tested on a real Mac yet, and only very lighly tested on
the CI runner (Intel VM). It should be a Universal App Bundle (that runs
on macOS >= 10.7 for Intel and macOS >= 11 for Apple Silicon), which
bundles the SDL2.Framework (so neither SDL2 nor developer tools have to
be installed before). When trying to launch from Finder, it will open a
Terminal window with PATH set to the installation path and run "risc
--help". pcreceive.sh and pcsend.sh are also included for convenience. A
disk image is not included.

Nightly build is here:

I'd be grateful if people could test it and provide feedback whether it
works. And if you have experience with bundling/compiling and have ideas
could be improved, feedback is highly appreciated.
