Building Trac on OS X from Sources

Here are some revised instructions on building trac 0.10.3 (including subversion 1.4.3 and some of the required dependencies) on Mac OS X (10.4.8 is the system I ran this on).

This does not build Python, Apache or SQL Lite as these are already pre-installed in the Mac OS and work just fine.

Copy the below code snippet as a shell script, and it should all run in one big hit. You'll need to sit and enter your admin password for the commands prefixed with 'sudo'. Alternatively you could sudo the execution of the whole script. (I prefer to not have the root user doing downloads and compilations).

Special note: most of these components are the latest at the time of writing this page and work fine. Except for neon. Subversion has a problem with the latest version of neon, so stick with neon 0.25.5 until you know that Subversion will work with something newer.

Here it is:
