Thanks for your fast reply Alexander, i understand the Fact with LION &
S.Leopard....thanks for the CFLAGS infos....ok, so i make some Tests with
Lion then on other MAC with the CFLAGS activation & 
repport the bench stats..

The reason, i swithc & stay on Snow it's after One week test, well,
this OS is really poor in Dev Modules & tools, you have to install all,
OPENMPI, OpenSSL & more + the system is clearly not stable for after one
week test i can confirm, it's better to stay on an Stable OS like SL ( where all
the dev things are all included & where the 64 Bits mode work perfectly also )
Got also some crash on better to let the
Apple Dev team check all the bugs & offer us an this time, 
if the major corrections done..why not..

Concern the Registration to the ML = ok done..E.mail send, thank you
