Supporting Mac OS X About Menu

I'm currently working on an application that must run on Mac OS X and Windows, but running into difficulty supporting the Mac OS X Application menu (About, Preferences & Quit). Detecting the platform at runtime is easy enough, but how do I compile a version that supports the Apple extensions (,, etc.) when the current build environment is Windows based? Is it simply moving the build process to Mac OS X or is there another solution? I've fooled around trying to use reflection to create the AboutHandler, PreferencesHandler, etc., but have been unable to get that to work.

Any and all suggestions greatly appreciated.
