I apologize in advance if I'm jumping the gun a bit here.  I'm not sure if 64 bit Mac builds are an immediate goal of GR2.  It does build under 10.6.4 and produce working executables.  However, it appears there are still some issues there, as scrolling in the source pane doesn't work correctly.  The scrollbars size correctly and respond to both mouse navigation and keyboard navigation within the displayed source.  The source pane doesn't actually scroll though.   Without any indication of whether 64 bit support on OS X was intended for this iteration, I didn't explore further.
