On a new enough Mac OS X version (I believe 10.5 is the first one), you
should only need to add "using mpi ;" to your user-config.jam and do not
need to install any additional software. If you could also try "using
expat ;", that would also be nice; I believe that is installed by default
as well. Thank you for running these tests.
