Look into MacVector.  I don't contact info at this moment, but if you
email me, I can get it for you.  It is not quite as robust as GCG, but it
is far more intuitive (as most Mac programs tend to be).  I have not used
either to any large degree (as my work doesn't require it), but if I had
to do something in that regard, I'd certainly go to MacVector first.
