Thank you for this information.  I have several tests to run, and one of
them is for the PowerPC release of OpenOffice.org 3.0.  Unfortunately, I
tripped over the power cord to my PowerBook G4 and may have broken the
power plug connection to the main board.  That will be an expensive
repair.  Alexandre has been quite busy lately and I don't have time to
do a daily GIT build here of Darwine.
