Right - and to add a bit, I use an intel mac every day for my work,
and encounter no problems using the traditional build system.

All ISIS sponsored builds will be converting to Leopard (10.5) as
soon as it is released, and as such any best-effort-whenever-I-feel-
like-it-(or it interferes with my work) support for the Tiger
platform I provide will cease at that point.
If you wish continued support for Tiger (or more guarantees than when-
it-interferes-with-my-work support for Leopard), you will need to
contract with a commercial company to provide that support.
