Re: [gtk-list] Re: Compiling GTK program for Mac on Linux

In my understanding, making a cross build system with no proprietary
components (the executables, libraries, header files that are not
permitted to be copied to non-Apple products) is almost impossible.

1) binary utilities for Mac OS X (especially otool, ar, ld) are
published under the open source certified license, but it is not
ready to be compiled by "./configure && make && make install" style.
I remember it requires Mach-O kernel headers etc. Also, the latest
linker is designed to be compiled with Xcode, not by command line

2) the most part of window system of Mac OS X is not published under
the open source license, maybe copying the headers & libraries to
other computers are not permitted. I'm not sure whether Apple permit
to expose them to other computers via network sharing, like, NFS etc
(I guess it is prohibited).
