I couldn't find the blog with the above like, only here:


Maybe some sort of wiki is the best place for this sort of stuff. As long as 
google can find the help forum or the blog it is ok though.

OK, I'll make sure the version-info bug is fixed for the next release. Other 
than that I couldn't see anything I could really change to improve things. I 
find it very disappointing that autoconf/automake don't work better on Mac OS 
X as we seem to want to do some pretty standard things. Like build a shared 
lib from sources for smoke, or build simple command line tools from c++ 
sources such as rbuic. Only the qtruby extension is a bit problematical in 
that the build system needs to know we're building a bundle, rather than a 
shared lib for dlopening. But even that should all be simple stuff which 
should just work.

The qt4 version of qtruby has cmake files for building now, and possible that 
will work better on Mac OS X/Windows - I really hope so. At the moment they 
have kde4 dependencies, and I don't know enough about cmake to remove those 
for the qt-only parts of qtruby. Also I think it should be possible to build 
a gem via cmake, which would be very nice.
