Dear all,

The error message indicates that the IBM XLF compiler runtime library is not 
installed on the mac, altough required by Delphi. You can get it for free 
from the IBM website : 
http://www-1.ibm.com/support/dlsearch.wss?rs=43&lang=en&loc=en_US&r=10&cs=utf-8&rankfile=0&cc=&spc=&stc=&apar=include&q1=&dc=D400&atrn=SWPlatform&atrv=Mac+OS+X&atrn1=SWVersion&atrv1=all&Go.x=7&Go.y=17&tc=SSCVSB3 . 
If the link does not work because of the session management on ibm.com, you 
can find it indirectly from 
http://www-306.ibm.com/software/awdtools/fortran/xlfortran/support/, "View 
all downloads", the select "Mac OS X" in the "plateform/OS" scrolling list, 
the "Go", then "RTE" in "Product category", then "Go" again.

The webpage says that you need a 10.2 or 10.3 Max OS X. In fact, it runs 
pretty well on Tiger, even though it might be broken one day by OS updates.

Good luck !
