The "Installing_on_OSX" page has been changed by DaveCottlehuber:

prep for 1.2.0 & some homebrew quirks

  == HomeBrew ==
  This is the fastest, most current, way of installing CouchDB from source on a Mac, along
with all dependencies. It tracks releases with only a few days delay.
+ Note: if you are using XCode 4.3 or newer, or the command-line only build tools, you may
need to install additional GNU automake tools before brewing CouchBB. For users that have

dependencies are not included in the CouchDB recipe.
+ {{{
+ $ brew install autoconf automake libtool
+ }}}
+ Then:
  $ brew install couchdb
+ }}}
+ If you're hacking on CouchDB, and we hope you will, you may try the current git-based development
branch using:
+ {{{
+ $ brew install --devel couchdb
  Note: OS X Lion might hang on the final make. See the thread at
It seems in most cases to be resolved by breaking out with CTRL-C and then repeating with
