Our Mac OS X distributions run on both 10.4 and 10.5. (I use 10.5.)

However, as of v372, there was a bug in the way that DrScheme generates
stand-alone executables for Mac OS X. I know that it broke the other
direction (running 10.5-built things on 10.4), but it's possible that
it also sometimes breaks in the direction that you're seeing.

You could try dropping


in place of "collects/compiler/private/mach-o.ss" in your installation
to see if it fixes the problem.
