Mac OS X woes

Apple, in their infinite wisdom, apparently changed the ABI and
assembly syntax between Mac OS X releases.  Unfortunately, I
don't have any machine running any of the older releases.

Can people with Mac OS X boxes running Panther and Jaguar (i.e.,
not Tiger) please compile the following test case to assembly and
send me the output?

unsigned char tab[256]; bar (int a) { return tab[a]; }

Please compile using,

1. gcc -fno-pic -O -S testcase.c
2. gcc -fPIC -O -S testcase.c
3. gcc -O -S testcase.c

Then please send me the resulting three testcase.s files.
