Dear Ned

Odd you should say that. The system is the latest version of 10.4 
(10.4.11),  but I did notice that the compiler assumed 10.3. The version 
  of Xcode on this PowerBook G4 is 2.0 (quite old), so perhaps it has 
OSX 10.3 wired in. I don't think that was the issue, but to eliminate it 
I'll download Xcode when I'm at work on Monday (better bandwidth) and 
see if that does a better job.

Cheers (and thanks!)
