[squeak-dev] histogram-based profiling tools on Mac OS X?

I'm badly in need of a histogram-based profiler for the VM I'm working
on. This is something that produces a histogram of time taken against PC,
insead of time taken against function. The interpreter is a very large
function and so function-centric tools aren't (IME) that useful. I've
written ones for BrouHaHa and VisualWorks and will write one again if
pushed. But I wonder whether anyone knows of anything off-the-shelf or
close enough to be wroth using as a starting point. For example, has anyone
written a graphing tool in Squeak using Morphic that I could steal for the
UI? Yes I could start with gprof and/or gcov but I find graphical
histograms much more immediate and helpful.
