Macintosh OS X port?

yes, I've put together a port for Molpro to OS X, but it's only
for version 2002.2 and higher. This is in the standard set
of patches for these versions. Unfortunately, Molpro also
requires a f90 compiler and so you have to have access to the
commericial (expensive) Absoft one.
The whole thing was a fair amount of work, but if you want to
try it for v2000.1 (which I see you're using below) I could offer
some help. Of course, I guess there won't be an appropriate parse
file for that version though, so I think you're stuck until you
upgrade to v2002.x
