 interest in keeping that up, but all the binaries are still there.

 I remember you had a few, which you then used for Linux. (On a side note,
 does FreeBSD work okay on G5s? It seems to have occasional support in
 Macports, so I thought it can be tried, but did not get time yet to go
 through a non-trivial installation process.)

 that MacPorts can support.

 Yes, Ryan’s plan is the first best.
