[erlang-questions] building erlang/otp dev on mac os x?

We built and ran the full OTP test suite on R14B03 for Mac OS X Lion with llvm-gcc (CFLAGS=-O0 --enable-darwin-64bit --enable-hipe). Here is the link to the tests results http://binaries.erlang-solutions.com/R14B03/Mac%20OSX%2010.7/test_server/ . We will also have the tests results for dev branch soon.

Michal Niec
