Subject: Caml on intel-OSX
A friend of mine reports he can't build Ocaml on one of those
new Mac machines running Intel processor.

However, he also reports:

> Luckily, I found a binary
> distro of ocaml for powerpc os x and installed that (it runs in an emulation
> layer). 

which is kind of funny.. he's running a bytecode version of the
Felix compiler on an Intel OSX system under an emulator to generate
C++ code which is compiled natively by gcc to produce 
an OSX/Intel binary .. :)

Anyone know about existing or planned support for OSX/Intel?

And a dumb question .. will a bytecode Ocaml program
just run on any machine provided a single binary,
ocamlrun, is installed and accessible?
