There's no OS X code branch - there are just OS X make targets.  I think
a new make target will need to be added for CUDA, and I think folks have
been doing that for their test builds already.  Or was this OpenCL only?
Erik, Lukas, Samuele - can you comment on this, please?  Dan - are you
looking for CUDA specifically or just for a way to use your GPU under OS
X (which could also be via OpenCL)?

What exactly do you mean by "1.7.9 with all the patches"?  In this
context, there are in fact several current code branches and versions:
latest released -jumbo, patches on top of -jumbo, magnum's git tree
based on 1.7.9-jumbo-5 (which will become the next jumbo release), and
magnum's other git tree based on latest CVS code (post-1.7.9) + jumbo-5 +
post-jumbo-5 changes (which is currently used for testing and will be
used for a release after the next release of the main JtR).  So when you
say "with all the patches", this does not refer to a specific
branch/version of the code.
