Some recent versions of PHYLIP Mac executables did not produce valid PICT
files.  We think we have fixed this (although some users report that with
draw programs such as Canvas our PICT files are truncated -- all we know is
that they do work on MacDraw).  Thus it is possible that both of you are
right  -- for different versions.  I would recommend replacing your
executables by the latest ones if you have PICT problems.

Can do this by WWW:  http://evolution.genetics.washington.edu/phylip.html
