Below is the only mail exchange on this subject in my archives.  Note that
the original message from Tobias Kunze doesn't provide any contact information
for the purveyors of MachTen, nor did I ever hear from them.

There is hope.  Tell them to contact me (Kalman Reti, 617-374-5326).  I can't
promise to spend a lot of time, but I'll try it out if they send me a copy of
MachTen (and I'll arrange to get them a copy of MCL).
