I was thinking it might be good to put a focus on this.  For example,
pick one day when everyone who wants to get started on Mac builds will
work on that.  We coordinate in advance with Pavel, so he is available
on IRC that day.  We have a thread so we can discuss and compare
notes.  The end result of that day (or maybe 72 hours) is everyone who
wants to build with Mac has done it.  And we have a set of
enhancements/corrections that we can feed back into the build
documentation, if anything was wrong or unclear.  Then, on another
day, we do Debian, and on another day we do Windows, BSD, etc.
