It would require some hacking of the configure script but in principle
it should work.

Yes, but if you are using the apple supplied builds of gcc it may
require a bit of effort convincing them to compile the C code generated by 
the compiler.  With apple's build of gcc 4.0 I could only get the source
distribution to build by compiling the C code at -O0, e.g. by putting


in the Mmake.params file at the top-level of the source tree.

There was (and still is) a problem with the version of Boehm GC we 
currently use in the ROTDs on powerpc**, it doesn't affect Intel machines.


** on powerpc the fix is delete the boehm_gc and replace it with the one
    from the 0.13 release.
