Steps to build DMG and zip
- If you already have a universal, current wxMac with all patches then you can skip this
- download wxMac
- apply patches - some may be on list. (as of 2.8.12 there is one patch: wxMacAdditions/wxMac_bug_2_10.5.8_PPC.patch)
- configure for universal *against the 10.4 sdk* or ppcs won't be able to run.
- TODO post correct configure
- get a clean audacity checkout
- open a terminal
- cd to the audacity root directory
- run ./scripts/mac_release_build (FROM THE ROOT DIRECTORY)
- this will create two tarballs outside of the root.
- expand and build these with './configure;make'
