[CM] compiling on OS X?

gtk+ is installed via homebrew (http://brew.sh)

I had to patch make-config-pc.rb to include -L#{CONFIG[“libdir”]}

$ diff tools/make-config-pc.rb tools/make-config-pc.new.rb 
> rubylibdir = CONFIG["libdir"]
< Libs: #{dldflags} #{librubyarg} #{libs} 
> Libs: -L#{rubylibdir} #{dldflags} #{librubyarg} #{libs} 

then this did the trick:

$ ruby tools/make-config-pc.rb > ruby.pc
$ PKG_CONFIG_PATH=.:/opt/X11/lib/pkgconfig/ ./configure --with-gtk --with-ruby --with-portaudio
$ make install

success! :)

next step would be for me to create a homebrew formula to automate installation for other people:

thanks for your help.
