Wanting to volunteer to test-build GMP on Mac OS X?

I have read on your home page that you lack Macs on which to build GMP
revisions, and since I have a Macbook with Xcode 3.2.1 (1) and both the most
recent Apple GCC and the most recent FSF's GCC, I was wondering whether I
could be of some help, for example if one could send me a list of revision
numbers to build and report the results.

The specifications of my Mac are the ones of the standard, normal 13'
Macbook. The major programs I have are:

Xcode 3.2.1 (1) and Apple, Inc. GCC 4.2.1 (1)
GCC 4.4.3
GCC 4.5.0 rev. 155465
GMP 4.3.2 (GMP 5.0.0, as I noticed the day of its release, stubbornly does
not build unless --host is none-apple-darwin*)
MPFR 2.4.2
MPC 0.8.1
Libelf 0.8.13

These mostly serve for my other hobby - GCC building.

If I may, indeed, be of some use to you, please send me an email saying so.
I lack, however, hg (Mercurial), the revision control program that you use,
however I do have svn. Help in installing hg and precise instructions on
what and how to build would be most appreciated.
