If it's DerelictAllegro you're using, then you need to know this. 
Derelict loads libraries manually (via dlopen on Posix systems). This 
means you have to do this in your code for each binding you want to use:


This will use preconfigured paths to load the libraries. Currently, 
DerelictAllegro is only configured to load on Windows. I need to figure 
out how it is typically installed on OSX so I can pass the correct paths 
to the loader. It should just be a matter of a quick Google, but it 
might be a few hours yet before I can get to it.

In the meantime, the load method accepts a string parameter if you want 
to load a specific library. So you can do this for now:


... where path is the framework/dylib/so, whatever the case may be. 
Aside from that, the rest should just work.
