What resources are available (internet, books, whatever) that focus specifically on the issues involved in porting Windows apps to Mac?  

The app I want to port is MFC-based.

See article from MSDN:
MSDN: BackGrounders: From One Code Base to Many Platforms Using Visual C++

Also there is written:
======================
Microsoft Visual C++? Cross-Development Edition for Macintosh (Visual C++ for Mac?) provides a set of Windows NT? or Windows 95?hosted tools for recompiling your Windows code for the Motorola 680x0 and PowerPC processors, and a portability library that implements Windows on the Macintosh. This allows you to develop GUI applications with a single source code base (written to the Win32? API) and implement it on Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh platforms.

Thanks MadYugoslav, but the Cross Development Edition appeared only briefly with VC++ 4, and no longer exists.

I need to find current resources.

Thanks Alex.

The first two discussions didn't really go anywhere, but vxWindows looks interesting - I wasn't aware of it before...
