I have recently had to port an application we are writing to MacOS X,
and so have done a fair bit of work on making the compiler a bit more
stable on MacOS X.

For me it works find using gcc 3 and the latest unstable ROTD.  I have
been doing some serious stress testing of the compiler.

The latest unstable ROTD also includes improvements to the garbage
collector that allows one to build programs in the parallel grades, and
it seems quite stable, despite some misgivings on the boehm_gc mailing
