My attempts so far are using Macports.
I'm able to compile OpenCascade just fine.
Running autogen.sh I get a bunch of errors like this
The sample configure command on the wiki has a path to Qtsrc/Mod/Robot/App/Makefile.am:17: warning: source file 'kdl_cp/velocityprofile_traphalf.cpp' is in a subdirectory,
src/Mod/Robot/App/Makefile.am:17: but option 'subdir-objects' is disabled
but mine is/usr/local/Trolltech/Qt-4.8.0
so I updated the configre command accordingly, but when I run configure, here are a few errors I'm getting/usr/local/Qt4.8

I have qt4-mac installed via macports and also tried downloading and installing Qtchecking whether Qt is installed as framework... yes

I also gave it a shot using cmake as in the Unix instructions
I tried to add Spnav, but when I went to compile it, it says not supported on Darwin.-- prefix: /usr/local
