Kicad now compiles on Mac OSX

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

svn checkout 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


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

% locate wx.h

% locate wx-config
