Naturally, I understand. Frankly I think it's remarkable how much is available pre-built for so many architectures. In any case, thanks very much for your comments and suggestions. Since 4.6 is more or less here now, I may see how things are in 4.6/macppc first, and perhaps contact the port maintainer if the problem persists in the new release.
