Sorry for inconvenience.  I temporarily withdrew the file because I
found a minor mistake before no one had downloaded it.  It is
available now.

At least, I'd like to make the Mac port separate for now: it's still
at the experimental/hackers-only stage.  I hope I can get rid of that
label shortly after the 23.2 release.

The Mac port can be built on Mac OS X 10.2 - 10.6.  As far as I know,
the NS port can be built on Mac OS X 10.4 - 10.6: there is a problem
with a compilation on 10.3 (*1), and a 32-bit binary can be made on
10.6 (*2) with a small patch (23.1) or as it is (CVS trunk).
