I compiled it myself just used the actual git with "./configure --x-includes=/usr/X11/include --prefix=/usr/local --without-xml"
msxml gave me errors when i tried compiling with it.

Actually i found one, through a thread in the Codeweavers forum.
/Library/Application Support/HWPrefs/CPUPalette.app
It should be part of the Apple Developer Tools, with it i can deactivate one of the cores and Thief runs perfectly now.

Well i'm off playing, but thank you for your effort.
