   They could be compiling it on an IBM PPC, they say they've got a
   native-mode compiler, and the only ones I know of are MetroWorks
   CodeWarrior, and the IBM AIX compiler.

That's right... I forgot about the IBM PPC workstation... and since the
MacPPC is similar to it... There will still be problems, where the two
systems differ, but it is a major advantage to have a full (even if it is
AIX) UNIX on a similar platform to start with.
