    If you have the development tools installed, get the unrar source code, currently

    ftp://ftp.rarlabs.com/rar/unrarsrc-3.9.6.tar.gz

    copy makefile.unix to Makefile then run make. Copy your new executable using sudo or su into root to copy unrar into /usr/local/bin.

    Now you have the latest version optimized for your hardware. Just make sure /usr/local/bin is in your path.

    After that you should be able to do this:
    Code:
    $ file `which unrar`
    /usr/local/bin/unrar: Mach-O 64-bit executable x86_64
