[RC5] installing CUDA client on Mac OS

The readme.cuda has the following text:

    If you are unable to execute the dnetc binary because of a missing
    libcudart.so library, you have to set your LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment
    variable (on Linux) or DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH (on Mac OS X) to include
    the 'lib' subdirectory of the extracted client archive prior to
    running dnetc.

Unfortunately, there are no Stream API libraries on Mac so the current
cores cannot be directly compiled there.  Apple is instead
recommending that people rewrite their Stream code to use OpenCL
instead, and unfortunately we don't have anyone with the time and
experience to do that yet.  If you are able to, you are welcome to
help us by working on this.  The reference source code at
http://www.distributed.net/Source can be used as a starting point.
