Thank you David. I think this is the same packet on Sarovar, but I shall have a
look. I have never installed a packet manually on mac. Could you please mail me
the steps? I shall try it out straight away. the preprocesser is indeed named
mm. I need to check that about mlym. If this works for me well, I shall post it,
so that others can profit from this.

Best regards
