I gave the new Snow Leopard friendly gem a whirl on my newish MacBook
Pro, and an older MacPro tower. Both installations went fine, and I
was able to execute my applications and FoxGUIb, without any issues
save but one minor thing:
The MacPorts installation that I have produces anti-aliased text in
all of the widgets, but the gem does not. I'm guessing this has
something to do with a FreeType library installation or something, but
it if doesn't bloat the gem much, that might be a good thing to include.
