Thanks for your help!  I have Mercury 0.10.1 running on my G4 (Mac OS-X.1).  
I tried compiling the ROTD (with and without the patches mentioned in the 
link); no luck, Boehm's GC did not compile.  It stopped with the following 
error: "powerpc_macosx_mach_dep.s:18: unterminated character constant".  I'm 
no good at debugging assembly, but I think it's an incompatibility between 
whatever version of GCC Boehm expects to Mac OS-X's version (a previous 
error complained gcc did not exist for the definition of AS in 
scripts/mgnuc, converting it to cc caused the error in this paragraph's 

Also, I saw a bunch of archive files at the ftp site for various platforms, 
but not for Mac OS-X.  Would the Mercury group like me to upload my port?  
If so, to where do I upload it?
