I finally got access to an Intel Mac for a couple of days last week, and sometime in the next couple of days I'll be posting updates to the install scripts to handle the needs of both PPC and Intel OSX installs. It wasn't really that hard since I've done it all before, and I can say definitely that a MacBook Pro (Core Duo 2.0 GHz) is much faster than a dual G5 @ 2.0 GHz (like about 2-2.5x faster in compile time alone). Very impressive machines these new Intel Macs. The Intel Macs also bring the USB functionality up to 32 MBps, which is on par with Linux at least w/r.t. GNURadio's USRP. The only significant runtime glitch that I can find is that the FUSB_darwin code needs to do endianness translation now, but that's relatively simple to add (just difficult to test w/o an Intel Mac around to test on; any volunteers?). - MLD
