...so I'm at apple's wwdc, and I just had to test pd and gem against  
the new x86 OSX boxes:  they're running a 3.6GHz P4 with 2GB RAM, 2MB  
L2 cache...just downloaded the pd-0.38-4 source from miller's site,  
and only had to change the location of Wish Shell.app to get it  
running:  tiger has a Tk.framework (8.4.7, so my cg stuff is  
shipping!), and the framework has Wish Shell.app embedded...

...only one "error":

consistency check failed:  cos~: unexpected machine alignment

...and the audio ain't working, but that's probably an endian issue  
in portaudio...

...then chris egged me on over chat to try GEM...at first we tried  
his old G3 build of 0.90, but no luck...then I just grabbed cvs HEAD  
and used the new configure/make build, and a few tweaks later, it was  
working quite respectably!  Not bad for such a big change...btw, yes,  
I did include the "--with-MMX" configure flag :-P
