Better late than never (only 1yr & 1day :), i'll reply.

The basic problem is my mac mini is one of the original Core Duo based
Intel models. This is 32 bit only hardware.

32bit only compiler support was discontinued, and now you can only get
recent compilers for 64bit OSX's.

Combine that with the most recent compiler I could get my hands on would
ICE building parts of the code we know are fine (and they build fine
with the newer 64bit only compilers) I essentially hit a dead end.

So the big stick came out, and the OSX builder is no more, and it is now
the Fedora 17 32 bit builder :)

But now they've released fedora 18....... +todo list
