+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.
