Default Slow encoding on Mac OS X

First of all I want to thank the developers for all the work placed into Musepack.
Imo its the best lossy encoder out there!

But I am disappointed with the encoding speed I get with the encoder for Mac OS X.
When I encode using the latest mppenc (1.15u) --standard I only get ~2.6x speed.
Really not sure if the encoder use AltiVec optimization, or if there are other ways to make it faster? (I know how to optimize using " ./configure > make", but not through Xcode as this software use).
Any hints are highly welcome! :idea:

By the way, I am running Mac OS 10.3.8 on a PowerBook G4 1.5GHz with 1GB ram.
