> Is OSX a supported platform? It would be nice if the README had a bit more information
on how to compile and what the dependancies are. For instance I think the instruction "Before
compiling, you need to have compiled and installed libguac, the core Guacamole libraryā€¯
may possibly be misleading?

> The guacamole-server README is out-of-date and does not correctly cover the current build
process. The actual required/optional dependencies are listed only in the manual (,
while the README lists dependencies which are actually now part of the guacamole-server build
> If the README is to be "quick and to-the-point documentation" covering building Guacamole,
as it explicitly states it is intended to be, this needs to be fixed.
