Thanks, that sounds plausible. But then we can use xml builtin. So I just compiled wxWidget from SVN with the following line:

./configure --enable-unicode=yes --enable-shared=no --enable-monolithic --with-opengl   --enable-aui --enable-debug --with-expat=builtin --with-osx_cocoa   --with-macosx-sdk=/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.6.sdk/ --prefix=/opt/wxwidgets-svn

I then did a clean checkout of kicad-svn and only had to add the ASSERT line


And it compiles fine. I only see 2 warnings:
1. ld: warning: in /System/Library/Frameworks//QuickTime.framework/QuickTime, missing required architecture x86_64 in file. 
		But that's apple's fault for not providing the x86_64 stuff.

2. ld: warning: option -s is obsolete and being ignored
		This is harmless

Perhaps someone can confirm this works for them and then Jerry can update his osx-compiling page.
