Re: [gtk-osx-users] [Gtk-osx-users] Problem Building on 10.8.2

So to fix this should I delete the current .jhbuildrc-custom file and start the build process again?

When Lion came out I changed _osx_version from a string to a float so that I could use < and > with it. Your .jhbuildrc-custom is from before that.

BTW, I also changed _osx_version so that it has the expected value rather than the offset-by-4 value of yore, so Tiger is now 4.x instead of "8*.
