There's the backtrace implementation for exceptions as well, 
"rt.backtrace". I had to slight modify the DMD backend to get that to 
work the same as it does on Linux and FreeBSD. I've documented how it's 
implemented in the commit message [1].

You should be able to reuse most parts of rt.sections_osx_x86. I don't 
think there's anything in that file that won't work on x86-64. But you 
would need to adjust it for the TLS implementation you're using.

It was pretty straight forward (once I figured it out :) ) to implement 
in DMD and it's pretty well documented you want to implement it in GCC.
