Remember to use `jhbuild shell` to get your environment set up for working on your gtk programs. Unlike Fink and MacPorts, Gtk-OSX doesn't pollute your default environment -- which allows you to have more than one Gtk-OSX environment configured differently for different projects.

I'm not familiar with gtk-sourceview's config scripts, but it's likely that it's intended for a "normal" Linux installation and isn't able to find the right files to modify on a Mac. I suggest setting whatever environment variables you need in your .jhbuildrc-custom so that gtk-sourceview is set up properly when you run `jhbuild shell.`

It's written that gtk-mac-integration is deprecated but it is what is installed by jhbuild. Maybe you want to mean that gtk-mac-integration/gtk-mac-integration.h is deprecated but gtk-mac-integration/GtkOSXApplication.h is not.

Rely on the GnomeLive! article at

Ige-mac-integration is an old name for gtk-mac-integration. It was originally written by Richard Hult when he owned a company called Imendio AG, and the "ige" prefix refers to that company. When it became an official Gnome project in fall 2010, I thought that the reference to Imendio (no longer in business) in the name wasn't really appropriate anymore and renamed it.

I suppose it's a bit confusing that the project and the deprecated library share the same name. I'll try to improve the GnomeLive! article to remedy that. I should also note that gtk+-3.4 has code to integrate with the OSX menubar directly. I haven't taken time to test that out yet, but that's clearly the path for the future.
