Hi Herbert,

You are right their is font library that is deprecated and only allows xe(l)tex to be built 32-bit!
This will have to change as the Mac world has going 64-bit. Yes, you can run 32-bit programs
under Lion, but it also comes at a performance price.

Anyone know exactly which library and how hard it would be to refractor or rewrite?
