agreed. it's a little bit of sloppiness, where they appended a -arch 
ppc instead of replacing the -arch i386. This keeps the multi-byte 
character stuff from compiling. And I bet since I've had that stuff 
enabled for testing, someone on my list has set that to their language, 
so when we tried to send the password, it barfed. I'm going to wait a 
week or so and then resend passwords...

I've got that on my list. First chance I get. Right now, I'm beating 
sendmail into a pulp on the xServe and trying to build an ssh tunnel 
for a tool to send email on remote machines instead of feeding into 
port 25 (why? Because solaris is butt slow compared to the Xserves, and 
I run out of resources, so I'm using scp and ssh to offload the 
delivery onto the xServe before firing up the script)

Very funny, Scotty. Now beam my clothes down here, will you?
