I haven't tried it. Apple is using gcc 4 as the default in Tiger and
this has caused some problems for language implementations due to some
change in argument order on the stack, it seems. The solution is to fall
back on gcc 3.3 or to use less optimization. I hope that someone who has
actually compiled the virtual machine will give you a better reply.
