I have compiled GOODS on my PowerBook, running Mac OS X 10.3.5.
I think the GOODS version is 2.85.  I don't think I did any patching
or anything special before compiling it - I am working mostly from memory
here.  I downloaded the sources from


Most of my GOODS use has been on our Windows computers at work, but
we did do a little troubleshooting work using the PowerBook a while ago;
it worked well at least in that limited use.

If you can't compile GOODS 2.85 there, I'd be happy to see if I could reproduce
the same kinds of trouble here -

Hope this helps,
Ben (another one)
