Just to keep the confusion down I expect that the TeX distribution  
itself will be Panther/Tiger/Leopard compatible. It is the extras that  
come with the full MacTeX distribution (i.e., the TUG TeX Live 2008  
DVD) or MacTeXtras (which is everything except the TeX distribution)  
that I am concerned about.

Good Luck,
