I think that checking binaries into CVS would be a really bad idea.   
It will cause more problems than its worth since there are many  
platforms, like G3, G4, G4, Intel Mac.  There is already a lot of  
support built into the Pd-extended build system to do CPU-specific  
compiles.  If this code is done, then automatically building it  
should not be hard.

Nothing, I have no access to an Intel Mac.  Any volunteers?
