The stock amd didn't work for us in Mac OS X 10.3.
Here's how we installed am-utils-6.1-20031025:

./configure --prefix=/usr
make
make install

Create /System/Library/StartupItems/AMD with the files:

AMD
Resources/	-- copy from other directories in ..
StartupParameters.plist

Then, make sure that AMDSERVER=-YES- is added to /etc/hostconfig.

******************* the file AMD:

#!/bin/sh

##
# Start AMD
##

. /etc/rc.common

if [ "${AMDSERVER:=-NO-}" = "-YES-" ]; then
    ConsoleMessage "Starting AMD server"

    if [ ! -f /etc/amd.conf -a -r /etc/amd.conf.template ]; then
        cp /etc/amd.conf.template /etc/amd.conf
    fi
    if [ ! -f /etc/amd.map -a -r /etc/amd.map.template ]; then
        cp /etc/amd.map.template /etc/amd.map
    fi
    /usr/sbin/amd
fi

******************* the file StartupParameters.plist:

{
  Description     = "AMD server";
  Provides        = ("AMD");
  Requires        = ("Resolver");
  OrderPreference = "None";
  Messages =
  {
    start = "Starting AMD server";
    stop  = "Stopping AMD server";
  };
}

*******************

With the beta's of 10.4 (64-bit) we're having issues with realpath()
and amd mounted directories, but hopefully this is just a bug that
they'll fix.
