Any progress on binary installer for OSX?

Hi,

Anything I can do to help get a binary installer for OSX?

If I wanted to build one myself - is there a good place to start
looking to understand the problems?

Cheers,

Matthew

Matthew Terry, as part of his Mac testing project, has done a great deal of reconnaissance on this.

I know he was looking into statically linking some of the C dependencies (freetype, libpng etc.) as a way to make the installer more robust to different environments.

Thanks - that looks like a useful testing grid.

Are there any near-term plans for something like a .dmg or .mpkg or
.pkg installer?
