Hello! I see this part of the forum is a little less busy than the help section, but am hopeful someone can help me out in compiling Audacity for Mac.
I have already compiled a working build on Windows, although my Mac OS experience is at a halt.
I am somewhere in between these steps:
9) Once the download is complete, unzip it:
10) And finally build/install wxWidgets:
sudo <path to Audacity source>/mac/build_wxwidgets .
Mac is running Sierra and Xcode 8.1 (w/ the 10.6 SDK from 4.3.3). Comparing to the Windows install, my guess is I am not placing the unzipped [wxWidgets-audacity-fixes] folder in the right location, or it must be renamed for the script/system to find it.
The few routes I've tried all seem to produce the same result in Terminal:
../mac/build_wxwidgets: line35: ../configure: No such file or directory
Would appreciate tips on the missing link here. Cheers!

Are you sure that you got the patched version of WxWidgets?johnnyp wrote:../mac/build_wxwidgets: line35: ../configure: No such file or directory
You need to download it from the "audacity-fixes" branch here: https://github.com/audacity/wxWidgets
