Guy Harris c6a79c8885 Update the information about getting Xcode, and note that
PKG_CONFIG_PATH must include /usr/X11/lib/pkgconfig (the man page for
pkg-config 0.26 seems to indicate that pkg-config searches the
directories in PKG_CONFIG_PATH *in addition to* the standard
directories, so it *might* be sufficient to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to

Guy Harris b273aad66e Add Joerg Mayer's script, modified to add an "x" after
"macos", to fix some bugs, to use "sudo" if necessary when installing,
to make the library version numbers variables, and to download the
optional libraries, by default, as well.  Also add his patches to make
GLib build and work.

Update README.macos to reflect that.

Guy Harris 5d2ae3a081 Update to reflect that Tiger isn't the current OS X release.
Suggest that the user completely clean out their build trees and start
from scratch after an OS major version upgrade.  (That might well be a
good idea on *all* UN*Xes.)

Note some issues that show up with support libraries on Snow Leopard due
to builds being 64-bit by default (and note that you *get* a 64-bit
Wireshark by default).

Guy Harris 154d2effdd We now try to detect OS X systems with a new libpcap but old headers,
and not try to use the shiny new routines on those systems, so you
shouldn't get the "`pcap_if_t' undeclared" error any more.

Guy Harris 8a8b883450 Set the svn:eol-style property on all text files to "native", so that
they have LF at the end of the line on UN*X and CR/LF on Windows;
hopefully this means that if a CR/LF version is checked in on Windows,
the CRs will be stripped so that they show up only when checked out on
Windows, not on UN*X.

Guy Harris b66308c7a2 Note that you need X11 and the X11 developer headers and libraries
installed in order to build Ethereal.

Michael Tuexen indicated how to successfully build GTK+ 2.4 on Mac OS X
(10.3[.x], at least) - update the directions to give the latest versions
of GLib/Pango/GTK+/ATK and to give instructions on how to make them

Guy Harris 65736157b4 To build with GLib 2.x/GTK+ 2.x, you need to configure with
--enable-gtk2 regardless of whether you have GLib 1.2[.x]/GTK+ 1.2[.x]
installed or not.

Guy Harris 41c5ac6821 Note that GTK+ 2.4 doesn't work, and indicate why.
Enumerate the dependencies for GLib 2.4/GTK+ 2.4, and indicate that GNU
gettext is also required, even though it's not in the set of
dependencies on the GTK+ site (after all, the ENTIRE WORLD runs Linux,

Give a (partial) order for the dependencies.

Note some issues with building and installing the JPEG and libpng

Guy Harris ea996167a4 Update to note that the 10.3.3 Software Update will probably also
install a new libpcap shared library but not install new libpcap headers.

Guy Harris 7e3ed089da It's Mac OS, not MacOS.
Note that Ethereal doesn't work on pre-X Mac OS, in case somebody sees
".macos" and thinks it'll work on OS 9 or earlier versions.

Explain that GLib and GTK+ now need to be shared libraries, and that
the GLib 1.x and GTK+ 1.x release tarballs were built with an older
version of libtool that didn't support building them as shared libraries
on OS X.
