5The contents of glib-2.28.1.tar.gz and libxml2-2.9.0.tar.gz have been modified to allow these to compile on Darwin. They were already compiling on Linux machines without requiring any changes. After the changes were made, they compile on Darwin while still compiling on Linux. Checked by compiling GS3 on both Mac Darwin and CentOS Linux.

8The bugfixes to get (this version of) gnome-lib to compile on Darwin:
9
101. In gs-glib-2.28.1/glib/gatomic.c
11 Bug error was "gatomic.c:885: error: syntax error before '*' token"
12 Solution described at http://code.google.com/p/osxwinebuilder/issues/detail?id=16 which states
13 'Alternatively I got it to compile by adding an extra #include "gthread.h" just before line 885 in gatomic.c,
14 although I guess from the surrounding comments that that would result in inferior performance'
15
16When compiling on LSB-32bit, ran in to a compilation error because it could
17 not find 'linux/magic.h'. This appears to be linked to the fact that
18 LSB is using quite an old version of the kernal headers (2.4?). Newer
19 version of GLIB have a fix for this. At this stage we're not planning
20 on jumping to such a newer version (in case it break other things, such
21 as cross-compiling for Android). So we have taken the autoconf fix for
22 this, and added it in to this version of the source code. Changed
23 'configure.ac' and 'glib/gfileutils.c'
24
252. In gs-libxml2-2.9.0/threads.c
26
27a. First of 2 bugfixes to version gs-libxml2-2.9.0/threads.c is an INSERT of a new line around line 146
