The website has recently been changed over to a fresh new one, so if you have bookmarked links to the old storage locations they will not work.
Try refreshing your browser and navigating through the menus to get the new URL for the files.
Sorry about that, due to some naming convention changes with the new website the new Mac file was uploaded but not correctly put into the database. I have just checked now and the file is correctly online.
Just as a side note, the development branch releases for Mac (both PPC and x86) point to the same file, which is a universal binary. This is done to conform with the current website layout. Once we make the transition to the new stable branch, the two architectures will be replaced with one (universal binary).
I have just taken a look at the MacOSX issue and you are correct. Some of the symbols were being incorrectly stripped. We have re-uploaded version 4.07.20 of the Mac universal binary, so if you go and download it again the problem should be corrected.
