You do realize that Apple shifted from one day to the other from PowerPC to 
x86 with no advance warning except for their largest software vendors, Adobe 
and Microsoft? To ask a software released before that move to support 
something that was not known at the time is a joke, and a bad one!

Which is a really nice book discussing issues that have absolutely nothing 
to do with POV-Ray - but maybe you could recommend it to people at Apple 
that change directions at light speed without regard for backward 
compatibility...
