So far, I have found this list to be about the best place for getting 
info about using the new version of Matlab with OS X. With the 
generous help of Joseph's post, I am now able to use Matlab 6.5 (R13) 
with OS X 10.2.1.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to locate a source of info about

to the /Applications/MATLAB6p5 hierarchy would seem to violate the 
multiuser setup of OS X.

Thanks in advance.
