hm, i might not be running the latest shiny intel macbook, but my  
machines are still working fine most of the time :)
on the G5 i'm running xcode 2.5 which is the latest version for non- 
intel macs, if i'm not mistake.
so i'd think gcc should be more or less up to date (4.01).
i have no problem compiling UB externals for max for example, so i'm  
not sure if this is the issue.

yeah, no problem, i don't insist on fat.
but while using --disable-fat does fix the compilation, it doesn't  
turn up any usable binaries for me.
if i do a ./pd in /bin i get a wish.app and a pd window, but the  
menus are empty and i can't load patches or play any audio.

i must be missing something else.
