The other thing I was going to mention is that the locate command that
comes with Mac OS X doesn't support the "-i " & "-r" options; however,
see that you've already addressed this with a new variable. So, for
OS X, I can just put the following in my .emacs file:
(setq anything-locate-options '("locate"))

However, It might be worthwhile conditioning this in anything-
config.el so
that Mac users don't have to always make this customization. So, the
defvar could be:

(defvar anything-locate-options (if (eq system-type 'darwin)
                                  '("locate" "-i " "-r"))
  "A list where the `car' is the name of the locat program
followed by options. The search pattern will be appended, so the
\"-r\" option should be the last option.")

That way, only Mac users who download a different "locate"
will need to set the variable.
