Mac OS specific: no. Mac OS related: yes. The m68k code generator has 
been updated to the 1.0.5 branch and as sucht he m68k version is 
becoming equivalent with the i386 version in 1.0.5 concerning supported 
features. In 1.1, the code generator is becoming more and more processor 
independent and several routines for PowerPC support have been added in 
the last two months.
