Just to observe that WinBUGS will run on a any recent Mac using  
Crossover or the free WINE on which it is based.

Last time I looked, which was probably over a year ago, the R -  
WinBUGS interfaces did not understand recent versions of WINE, but  
this may have been fixed.

Alternatively you can use JAGS to run BUGS models on a Mac.  This now  
has an R interface on CRAN and will run in 64 bit even when used with  
a 32 bit  version of R.
