You could create a batch file (if this type of thing exists on a mac, sorry) to run the client 
with a specific block file, i.e. rc5des -in rc5in.000 -runbuffers; rc5des -in rc5in.001 
-runbuffers , etc.

If this doesn't inflict a significant penalty on the MacOS or something like that, you could 
also start a bunch of clients at the same time, each with their own block file.  This would 
complete the same number of blocks as if they were done in a serial fashion.
