This is def. a problem for Lazarus.. Of course the incomplete FCL is even 
more of an issue(for OSX that is, most other *nix stuff will be minimal I'd 
imagine), but I imagine once the compiler is more stable this will start 
filling in quickly.

Well once it's a little more functional on the PPC, we can start testing out 
Lazarus on Linux for PPC, and I'm sure you'll start getting all sorts of bug 
reports back then. ;) I have a farely fast mac I just installed OS X on, and 
I have Linux for it as well, so once it becomes a little more stable, I'll 
start seeing how well the version from CVS holds up against basic Lazarus 
stuff, linux first, then as the FCL becomes more complete for MacOSX I can 
start testing it out there using a X-Server and the GTK libs. I just wish I 
knew more about compilers and could help speed up the process...
