Getting minerd compiled on a recent mac isn't too painful. (The info is in this forum, if I ever get everything working, I'll post instructions) My problem is with getting it to compile for OSX 10.4, and ideally in a universal binary. After updating many libraries (m4, automake, autoconf, libtools), I can *almost* get minerd to compile, but it fails during the "make" with the following errors:
config.status: creating cpuminer-config.h
config.status: cpuminer-config.h is unchanged
config.status: executing depfiles commands

Getting this far has been beyond my ken, so I'm pretty stumped here. Is this because I'm trying to compile on a PPC processor? Should I install the dev tools on an intel box running 10.4? Should I just give up?
