It's likely that we won't need Mac OS in the early stages of our
implementation but it is a major build platform for us. If push comes to
shove and I have to install it on MacOS X and you haven't ported this to
perl, I'll have a go and report back the results.
I've a gut-feeling that compiling Perl 5.8.* on 10.3 with gcc2 isn't going
to be pretty. Though who knows, it might just work :-)
THIS HACK WILL BE REMOVED AS SOON AS POSSIBLE!
in comments is tempting fate :-) I should know, I've tempted it often

Thanks for letting us know, I'll look into that.

Not by me. RHEL will likely work, Mac OSX will be real ugly. I've ported
P4Ruby to OSX, and I had to do a really nasty hack to make it work. I'd
rather not repeat the experience, but if you're interested you can find out
