Kicad now compiles on Mac OSX

Just downloaded revison 1200 of kicad from svn using th following command

svn checkout http://kicad.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/kicad/trunk/kicad kicad-sources

I also upgraded to cmake 2.6.0 using the macports system and then followed the included instructions and it compiles ok on my macbook.

It is working a lot better but PCBnew is still fairly buggy.
The schematic side of it is working great though.

Worth a look but I’ll have to keep using the windows version for any stable work.
I’m going to keep an eye on the kicad-dev group and see if this makes any progress.

Note: my wxwidgets were installed via macports at

wxWidgets_CONFIG_EXECUTABLE=/opt/local/bin/wx-config
wxWidgets_ROOT_DIR=/opt/local/include/wx-2.8

but i noticed a version was already installed in a couple of places. Here is what locate gave me:

% locate wx.h
/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk/usr/include/wx-2.5/wx/wx.h
/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk/usr/include/wx-2.8/wx/wx.h
/opt/local/include/wx-2.8/wx/wx.h
/opt/local/var/macports/software/wxWidgets/2.8.7_0/opt/local/include/wx-2.8/wx/wx.h
/opt/local/var/macports/software/wxWidgets/2.8.7_1/opt/local/include/wx-2.8/wx/wx.h
/usr/include/wx-2.8/wx/wx.h

% locate wx-config
/opt/local/bin/wx-config
/opt/local/var/macports/software/wxWidgets/2.8.7_0/opt/local/bin/wx-config
/opt/local/var/macports/software/wxWidgets/2.8.7_1/opt/local/bin/wx-config
/usr/bin/wx-config
