Hi list,

a recent gmp on OSX builds in 64 bit mode if the CPU is capable of it, i.e. it is 32 bit in a G4, but defaults to 64 bit on a G5. The same applies to the various Intel CPUs, i.e. Core vs. Core2. You can always use ABI=32 to force a 32 bit build on a 64 bit capable CPU.

I have build and used pari and its dependencies with "pure OSX 10.5", i.e. no fink, via a 64 bit OSX port of Sage. If anything odd pops up when we will do more intense testing we will let you know :)
