That would be great if you could host the Gmapibuilder script. (mkgmap.org.uk is fine: as others have pointed out, the script makes a number of assumptions which may make it unsuitable for non-mkgmap produced maps).

I have attached a zip file of the python script (gmapi-builder.py) and a Mac OS disk image (Gmapibuilder.dmg) which contains the same script, but with a GUI added and bundled into a Mac application. (I have not yet extended the GUI version to add the .mdr and .mdx files.)

Thanks very much!
