I don't know what all the complaint is about... I have been using the jhbuild scripts with little to no problems. I have had a few dependency issues but nothing that can not be figured out with a little reading of the script itself and attention to what I am doing. In any case, anything that is missing, simple download to source directory, and build inside the jhbuild shell, your done!

  I just wanted to take this ridiculously appropriate opportunity to
you on the great improvements on the OSX build I've seen this year.

I by chance had a contract that involved building a GTK+/GStreamer application
that primarily had to run on OSX; two very notable results:

  a.) I started doing osx builds of Glade, and even did the
ige-mac-integration thing,
       just because it was so damn easy to do, that says alot because
I've really had
       next to no time this year for hacking Glade.

  b.) I started to appreciate jhbuild for the first time, actually
now I just stay
on osx and do anything GTK+ related on osx, just because damn it builds so easy on osx, easier than on ubuntu (hell I even built nbtk on my
       MacBook last week just for the hell of it, I only had to hack
the clipboard code
       and run an unstable clutter).

So thanks for making my job so easy, and thanks for making Glade and other
GNOME apps easily available on OS X ;-)
