Thanks Marco, 

and everyone else who has assisted me here. I finally compiled a successfulworking copy. Now I can start to experiment. 

Here were the steps I used to compile WX and Kicad mostly stuff Marco and Nick suggested and a little from the Compile.txt from Kicad. This version was built against the 10.5 SDK:


./configure --enable-unicode=yes --enable-shared=no --enable-monolithic--with-opengl --enable-universal_binary --with-mac
sudo make
sudo make install

Compiling Kicad 

cd <kicadSource>
mkdir -p build/release
mkdir build/debug
cd build/release

sudo cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DwxWidgets_USE_DEBUG=ON -DwxWidgets_USE_STATIC=ON

The following corrected some strange issues cmake was having.
edit the CMakeCashe.txt so this line is the same:

sudo make
sudo make install
