[gtk-osx-users] [Gtk-osx-users] Building gnucash on OS X 10.10 - Finally Success

I finally got a successful build, and here is how I did it.

Start at http://wiki.gnucash.org/wiki/MacOSX/Quartz

Look at the preliminaries:
1. download .jhbuildrc-custom into your homefolder
2. edit .jhbuildrc-custom, add 'skip.append("openssl")' somewhere in the file
3. download gtk-osx-build-setup.sh from https://live.gnome.org/GTK+/OSX/Building
4. run "sh gtk-osx-build-setup.sh"
5. run "jhbuild bootstrap"

That takes care of the setup. At this point in time I backed up the
gnucash-stable dir

6. run "LC_ALL=C jhbuild build". OS X does not define LC_ALL and
webkit likes to have it
7. The build will fail at gwenhywfar with a error about implicit
function declaration
8. Hit 4 to drop to a shell, edit src/os/posix/directory.c and add "#
include <mach-o/dyld.h>" just after "#  include
9. type "exit"
10. Hit 1, Rerun phase Build

11. libsoup with a bang, it crashes python hard
12. hit 4 to drop to a shell
13. type "cd ../glib-networking-2.42.1/"
14. type "make uninstall && make install"
15. type "exit"
16. Hit 1 to Rerun phase Build

17. webkit will fail with: Source/WebCore/xml/XPathParser.cpp:480:22:
error: no matching function for call to 'xpathyyparse'
18. Hit 4 to drop to a shell.
19. go one level up "cd .."
20. type "cd pkgs" to go to the downloaded source archives
21. Backup the original webkit archive "cp webkit-1.6.1.tar.gz
22. extract webkit "tar xpvf webkit-1.6.1.tar.gz"
23. enter the directory "cd webkit-1.6.1"
24. apply the attached patch webkit.patch. "patch -Np1 < webkit.patch"

This patch is a collection of the following:
Fixes some Bison incompatibilities:
Fixes the "cannot inline" warnings:
My own, remove Tools/DumpRenderTree from the build process by removing
the references to it from various GNUmakefile.am files
DumpRenderTree fails to build due to some pointer incompatibilities
between itself and nullptr.

25. From the webkit root do a "aclocal"
26. From the webkit root do a "automake"
27. Go one directory level up - to the source archives "cd .."
28. Re-create the tar.gz archive for webkit "rm webkit-1.6.1.tar.gz &&
tar cpvf webkit-1.6.1.tar webkit-1.6.1 && gzip webkit-1.6.1.tar"
29. exit
30. [6] Go to phase "wipe directory and start over"
31. Type "yes"
32. Webkit should build now and it should go all the way to the end of
building gnucash

Thanks to John for helping with known issues. I hope this can help
someone else out there, maybe even make it into the official build

Kind regards
