Mac OS X
Follow the generic build instructions.
You can install the missing dependencies via MacPorts or Homebrew. This is only needed on the build machine, since
non-standard libs will be deployed in the app bundle.
The only exception to this rule is libiniparser, which lacks a decent build system. If you are using Homebrew, you can
just add it:
brew tap dschmidt/owncloud
brew install iniparser
Otherwise, you need to copy the header and lib files to /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib respectively.
