  Did you need any patch ?

Not at this stage - everything compiled without any modifications.  I  
was wondering whether you would like to add the XCode project files  
to the source repository?

  if it's not too big why not, especially if it's a text format which can
be patched.

I compiled the tests for libxml2 and ran them on both the Mac Book  
Pro (Intel) and a PowerBook (PPC).  All tests passed... well, almost;  
there was one error reported but the message said "Specific platform  
thread support not detected" so I presume that this means threading  
may not be available.

  Strange, I would expect pthreads to be available, probably worth exploring.

For libxslt, I haven't run the tests yet on either platform.  Once I  
do that I'll report on success or failure.  I'm not anticipating any  
problems (if there were going to be problems I'd have thought they  
would manifest themselves in the libxml2 code), but you never know...

  okay, thanks,
