[Stackless] Fwd: stackless 2.6.2 on OS-X

There is an extra configure option (that is not default only for  
historical reasons which
no one can seem to remember -- which is sad because I think I added  
it :-) )
that you need on OS-X

configure --enable-stacklessfewerregisters

BUT: if you want to build a complete OS-X framework compatible version  
all the bells and whistles, the best thing to do is to:

cd Mac/BuildScript
python build-installer.py

You will need a net connection, because that will download and build a  
bunch of
extra packages, but you will wind up with a much more "Mac compatible"  
dist when you are done.
