It builds fine on a newer machine, but on the old machine I'm getting an error about a missing symbol _environ not being found but used in kurlcompletion.cpp I see some #ifdef Q_OS_WIN code that declares extern char **environ, but nothing with _ before it. I've no idea where that is coming from, nor why it is a problem with xcode 4.6.3 but not with xcode 6.1.1. Any ideas?

FWIW, I too am using Lion (OS X 10.7.5) and have Xcode 4.6.1 (older
than yours) and never any problems with building KIO, neither in MacPorts
nor in kdesrc-build.  And my MacBook is coming up to 4 years old and still
going strong…  But OTOH, I have not yet tried building KF5…

Cheers, Ian W.
