I've spent a few days part-time trying to build with Xcode 3.25, and the gnu tools that come with Xcode. There is a lot to learn, even for someone familiar with gcc, make and shell scripting. At the moment it is stopping with a compile error in one of the routines that use BerkeleyDB. My guess is that the code was written for bdb 4.4 and I installed BerkeleyDB 5.1.25.
What I'm really trying to do is get FSL ( http://www.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/fsl/index.html ) , a brain imaging data tool set, to run on sge. I'd rather be a user than a developer.
I'll wait a month come back to see where the user community is. If Univa decides not to provide a courtesy binary for MacOS, I'll pitch in.
