[erlang-questions] building erlang/otp dev on mac os x?

Yeah, sorry about that. The tests take a long time to run and I wanted to let other mac users know that there was a possible viable alternative.
I'm running more tests off and on today and will report those results, if there is interest.
Was kinda hoping to move mac users past the "use -O0" impasse...
