Thanks.  But I presume that you aren't distributing modified ACL2 lisp source
files (if I'm wrong then we should talk), and I wouldn't expect ACL2 Version
2.7 (the latest release) to work under openMCL.  We have made several changes
to those sources that will show up when ACL2 2.8 is released, so that ACL2 2.8
should work under OpenMCL.

   ACL2 builds on Mac OS X under OpenMCL if you use the darwinports system
   (similar to fink). See http://darwinports.opendarwin.org. Once you've  
   and built darwinports, issue the command

   sudo port install

   from the math/acl2 directory. If you type

   sudo port install +certify

   it will certify the books. This can take some time (about eight and a  
   half hours
   on a powerbook G4 800 MHz).

   A number of patches are required; these are automatically applied. If  
   you're interested
   in them look in the math/acl2/files directory.

   I'd like to get gcl to build under darwinports (acl2 would then run a  
   bit faster) but
   haven't found the time to do it yet.

   Best Wishes,
   Greg Wright
