I've been playing around with getting MLton working on my Mac and I 
have a few
suggestions.  The main issue is with gmp.  I suspect that most users 
will get
gmp from fink, which means that the relevant files will be in 
/sw/include and
/sw/lib.  I was only able run the binary download after addin a 
symbolic link
to /sw/lib/libgmp.3.dylib in /usr/local.  I tried adding a "-link-opt' 
to the mlton script, but that didn't help.  I also changed the include
path for gmp.h in usr/lib/mlton/include/platform/darwin.h.
