The same thing that it would take to get it working for ppc/mac - someone
fixing the problems in gcc's darwin support.  (I think one of the problems
is the gcc bug mentioned in README.MacOS; there may be others, when we
last tried on ppc/mac we couldn't get passed that one though).  Ben 
Schmid has been using Mercury on an Intel Mac and he mentioned a few weeks 
ago that gcc 4.2 may fix some of the problems.  (There was some discussion
of it on one of the Mercury mailing lists but I don't remember which.)
