Hi Paul,
That would be me (I believe). I run my GCS on my MacBookPro in a free VM (VirtualBox). What I like especially about the VM is the ability to recover back to a snapshot. More than once I've gotten things not working and just restored back to a point in time before. The VM is fast. As fast as running native in my opinion. Here's my post about the setup:
If you use VirtualBox and have any questions feel free to email me.

I have always found that compiling from source goes wrong 100% of the time for me and when I have to troubleshoot it takes days because I don't know what I'm doing.
It's okay, I think I'll go down the VM route for now because I've just been reading a forum where someone runs a paparazzi VM from his MAC laptop.  He said it works well.

Paul, why don't you compile it by hand? If I can compile it for armel...should be even easier because ocamlopt is available on x64. You just need to tweak a couple of makefiles that are i386 gcc specific, which is the usb stack an the radio protocol libs. Can't see any problems, you need to do

-xml-ocaml something, from the source in the wiki

-ivy-c from the ivy website

-ivy-ocaml from same place as xml-o

then cvs checkout pap, and try to make it.

Took me an evening for armel, so should be fairly quick on an x64!

Hope this helps
