Hi Samuel,

for KF5 version 5.13 I was able to successfully build all frameworks - omitting (Modem|Network)ManagerQt.

However, on OSX not all are really usable. You may want to check out comments regarding that on [1], which
mentions BluezQt, (Modem|Network)ManagerQt, KCrash (!), KPty, Baloo, KDESu and KGlobalAccel.


 1) That KCrash is listed in there is quite irritating for me… ( @ Ian !!!??? )

 2) I am also not sure whether KGlobalAccel is actually not used/usable on OSX.

I am waiting for David to release the next version 5.15, as 5.14 had some troubles…
