OK. Gerben, please compile pdfopen and pdfclose for darwin (powerpc
and i386), if it will not be a problem for you.

We will add bbox and ps2eps to the source tree after a release, then,
so in this year's release only darwin builds will have them (and in
those archs who's builders don't mind to build them separately).

Among other discrepancies which would be nice to fix:

* epstopdf in darwin builds differs from what we have in other archs
  (and in the source.development tree). Gerben, why is that? why do
  you not put differences into the common source tree, but prefer to
  have some differences present only in your darwin builds?

* texdoc in darwin builds is outdated. the file in source.development
  was updated on 2005/08/03, so again it is unclear why darwin's
  binaries do not match what is in source tree.

* texi2html in i386-linux was not built from source.development tree
  (see e.g. different settings for $USE_UNICODE if you compare
  texi2html from i386-linux and from some other arch). Why is that?
  Staszek, could you comment why you prefer to not substitute
  texi2html binary from your local copy, and not submit it to
  source.development tree?
