Hi,

I have made some little progress in compiling R8B on my G4 Mac.. 
changing the lines around 1712 of sys/unix/sys.c to read:

> /* Interface function available to driver writers */
> int driver_select(this_port, fd, mode, on)
> ErlDrvPort this_port;
> ErlDrvEvent fd;
> int mode, on;
> {

gets beam to compile, but I bomb out at:

This is way too heavy for me!

Any suggestions anyone?
