Whoops, I may have forgotten to rename the disk image.  It is just a  
cosmetic problem.  At the moment there is one problem that needs to  
be addressed in the mac version, namely that the saving of graphics  
files is broken.  I did recompile pgplot using the script included  
with the source, but something must be broken.  I would love to  
switch to gcc4 so that I could just steal the fink maintained  
libpgplot and as a bonus this already incorporates aquaterm.   
Unfortunately, the fink version is compiled with gcc4 and ifeffit is  
compiled under gcc3 and the two don't mix.  It would be sort of neat  
to move ifeffit to gcc4 to make it easier to link in with gcc4  
libraries.  The currently used g77 is (as far as I now) a "legacy  
compiler" that will never make the jump to gcc4.  Right now the g95  
compiler (www.g95.org) compiles pretty much everything I have thrown  
at it without errors and would seem to be a good choice as well.  I  
think I can hack and half manually do the switch with a fair amount  
of effort, but I would hate to have to do this every time a new  
version of artemis came out.  In any case, when I get a little more  
time, I will try and fix the missing graphics file write problem in  
the current libpgplot.  It would be neat to even include aquaterm in  
doing so.
