On dektop summit I did talk to Paul Adams and Marcus
Hanwell about mac builds and we are going to set up a mac pro (will be hosted 
by Intevation) for continous builds of kde on Mac OS X next weeks.

Just a note: It's not allowed to virtualalize any Mac OS X on non Apple 
Hardware and without Mac OS X Server edition.
