And even if they work (not fail by Init / Build erros) results fail.
EDIT: I attached the Displacement (fluid simulation) OpenCL benchmark (FPS). Use S to switch between 2 modes
Usage: Start terminal, cd drag&drop folder of the app into terminal ENTER, drag& drop app into terminal ENTER
So i compiled (old ) Galaxies again, removed VSYNC and compiled for 10.7 + 10.8
Works here for me even with 10.8 , but may fail with other gpus running 10.8.

Usage, very easy: Galaxies starts up in GPU Mode, you can switch by key s to cpu single / cpu multicore and back to gpu only. ESC quits
The mode change (key s) takes some time - mostly a few seconds !
Info: Galaxies uses the number of 65K (65536) as default for the star count.
The more stars the more cpu+gpu load. Fast gpu may get a bit more Gigaflops if they use more stars , use 81920 or even higher
262144, than default.
HOW TO CHANGE NUMBER OF STARS COMPUTED (may increase GigaFlops):
Finder show package content on Galaxis
Drag & Drop galaxies (black icon) in terminal
81920 ENTER (be sure to have an space between galaxies and the 80K number, max is
Slow gpus may not get any more Gigaflops by increasing the number - but the simulation itself will be shown very slow - takes much time to see the nice star movings.
You can use in this case better 32768 , which speeds up the simulation compared to the 65K or 80K.
Galaxies, as OpenCL bench takes much cpu load - so i recommended in the past better use Luxmark or OceanWave (both stopped working with 10.8) for OpenCL benching.
