OK, that confirms that MacOS X is supported.

I'm always tempted to snare another platform "win", but will draw the
line at dragging my own machines out of the closet ;) If there is no
potential user who cares about it, we should let it die a graceful
death.

For NetBSD/ppc (and any other platform not on the list) the sooner the
better; if you can bang it out at the beginning of the week we should be
able to get the info into the release.
