I just tried it now on a PowerMac G5, configuring with -cc "gcc -m64",
but I cannot link with ocamlopt.
Here is the error message:

ld64 failed: relocations in read-only segments not supported. _caml_startup__frametable in /tmp/camlstartup6ac9d3.o reference to atom #29
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

I get this trying to build ocamlc.opt, or any other program.
This is using MacOSX 10.4 / Darwin Kernel Version 8.7.0: Fri May 26
