I'm guessing that the 64-bit nature of your machine might be the
problem.  There might be assumptions about the size of a machine word
hidden somewhere deep inside some part of the library.  We have never
specifically tested on 64-bit machines, although Hat does certainly work
on my 64-bit PowerPC under MacOS X.  But the PowerPC is a big-endian
architecture, whereas your machine may well be little-endian, e.g. if it
is from AMD or Intel.

At some point soon, I hope to get time to test out Hat on an Athlon-64
we have in the Dept.  More news when I have it.
