./configure failed
#1
Hi, when I tried to build the XBMC from source on Mac, I am getting the following error.
1st, configure: error: unsupported host (x86_64-apple-darwin10.6.0)

Now, I tweaked the "configure" file and added the support x86_65-apple-darwin
now, I am getting the following error from running "./configure"
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... g++ -E
checking boost/shared_ptr.hpp usability... no
checking boost/shared_ptr.hpp presence... no
checking for boost/shared_ptr.hpp... no
configure: error: Could not find a required library. Please see the README for your platform.

as it clearly tells you, boost is not available.

compiling for x86_64 on osx is not supported yet.

Do not e-mail XBMC-Team members directly asking for support. Read/follow the forum rules.

macer: because none of the OSX devs have the time to implement whats required, patches are welcome though.
I am not scared of SVN - Cutting my hands open on the bleeding edge.

Because our build system does not support it yet. There are 40+ depends libs that have to build with the correct arch, then another handfull internal libs, then xbmc itself. You don't just use gcc-4.2 and pray it works.

I also tried to build this. I followed the instructions to a T, and was unable to build it.

How is it being compiled and released?
