JSF development with NetBeans 4.0

Does anyone know a sure way of doing JSF development with NetBeans? I managed to get the JSF tags to auto-complete, but not the faces-config.xml ones. The other thing is, the little I’ve managed works on the Windows version of NetBeans and not on the Mac OS X one. I wondered that maybe I used two different versions of the reference implementation, but trying various combinations proved me wrong. So now, after an initial success, I am back to square one. The Mac box is my preferred development machine; if I cannot use NetBeans for JSF projects on it, I will be obliged to switch back to Eclipse. And Eclipse is a dog under Mac OS X :-(

UPDATE: I now have a solution for easing JSF development on NetBeans, which I am going to write about soon.
