Hi. On an Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.6.8, I followed the instructions 
to install a NativeBoost VM found here: 
http://code.google.com/p/nativeboost/wiki/Installation. I downloaded the 
latest Mac NBCog VM,  and ran into an error after evaluating NBInstaller 

I'm using the 4.3alpha-11636.image file. The 4.2 image gives a different 
set of errors but also wont install:

The progress bar window says: Compiling NativeBoost-Core-IgorStasenko.36

The window title is "Syntax error" with a split text field. The top 
field contains:
nbExternalStructure Fields parsing spec parseFields:byte

The bottom field has a red error message embedded in this line:

         stream peek == #Invalid literal character ->; ifTrue: [ stream 
next ].
