Bug Description

I came across a FIXME in os-bsd.lisp about MACHINE-VERSION, the hw.model sysctl appears to return less then useful values on Darwin and on x86 Darwin there is a much more useful machdep.cpu.brand_string sysctl which should be used instead. Attached is a patch which does this, untested since I only have PPC Darwin systems.
