Re: Illegal instruction 4 when running eeschema after executing kicad-mac-builder
I have a branch that switches us to OCC. I believe OCE is not
maintained anymore, and that may be the root of some of your issues.
I am glad you are up and running!
If you or Jonatan want to write up some instructions for using
kicad-mac-builder to jumpstart a dev environment, I'd love to hit
accept on a PR :)

That’s not so bad, but the oce plugin still wouldn’t compile until I did some shenanigans with system libraries to make it look like 10.12:
