As everyone suspected, gsharp does indeed run fine.  My problems were:
1)  Needed to compile the special fonts in a place GSharp could find  
them (defined in the INSTALL document)
2)  I needed to have the X11 system up and running.  I mistakenly  
thought that the Cocoa bridge was somehow magically working under  

The only gotcha at the moment is that FLEXICHAINS causes the "(FIND- 
CLASS 'NUMBER)" error we just discussed.
