that sums it up. cfm externals will only load on mactel hardware when
running a pre-UB version of max/msp under rosetta. as soon as you run a
UB version of max, all the objects have to work for that architecture as
well, which means mach-o only on intel macintosh hardware.
this entire situation is described in some detail in the ReadMe.rtf that
comes with the 4.6 installers.
