How to build and bundle CRRCSim on Mac OS 10.9 (OSX Mavericks)
# HOW TO BUILD CRRCSIM 0.9.12 ON MAC OS 10.9
# ...compiling CRRCSim into an OSX application using MacPorts for dependencies
# CREDITS:
# Instructions heavily inspired by:
# http://blog.mywarwithentropy.com/2012/03/how-to-compile-crrcsim-v0912-for-mac.html
# PREREQUISITES
# install xcode
# install macports
# INSTALL LIBRARIES
sudo port install plib
sudo port install jpeg
sudo port install portaudio
sudo port install libsdl
sudo port install gmp
sudo port install cgal
# INSTALL COMPILER AND BUILD TOOLS
sudo port install wget
sudo port install gcc47
sudo port install dylibbundler
# DOWNLOAD CRRCSIM SOURCE CODE
# simply download the .tar.gz from source code archive from the crrcsim website, extract it to ~/repos/crrcsim
mkdir -p ~/repos/crrcsim
cd ~/repos/crrcsim
wget http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/crrcsim/crrcsim/crrcsim-0.9.12/crrcsim-0.9.12.tar.gz
tar -zxvf crrcsim-0.9.12.tar.gz
rm crrcsim-0.9.12.tar.gz
mv crrcsim-0.9.12/* crrcsim-0.9.12/.* .
rmdir crrcsim-0.9.12
# APPLY A PATCH
# Apply a patch to crrcsim/src/mod_misc/filesystools.cpp.
# This is needed so CRRCSim can correctly find its resources inside the app bundle.
# The patch is inspired by the following blog post:
# http://blog.mywarwithentropy.com/2012/03/how-to-compile-crrcsim-v0912-for-mac.html
# ...but has been heavily modified to work on OSX Mavericks.

# CONFIGURE
# Note: make sure to configure the build so it uses gcc instead of clang, because you will otherwise get "implicit instantiation of undefined template" errors, compare http://stackoverflow.com/questions/19719684/how-do-you-fix-implicit-instantiation-errors-when-compiling-mesos-on-os-x-10-9
# Note 2: from my experience, you can safely ignore the warnings about portaudio > 18 being unstable.
# Note 3: Compiling with CGAL support requires the GMP library and the "-lgmp" linker flag, see http://stackoverflow.com/questions/4083285/cgal-linker-error-symbol-not-found-gmpq-clear

cd $HOME

# OPTIONALLY, DELETE YOUR SETTINGS FILE
rm $HOME/Library/Preferences/crrcsim.xml
# TEST CRRCSIM
# Note: You could directly run the binary using `$HOME/crrcsim.app/Contents/MacOS/crrcsim`, but it is best to run the app by double-clicking on it in the OSX Finder, or by running:
open $HOME/crrcsim.app
# INSTALL TO APPLICATIONS FOLDER
mv $HOME/crrcsim.app /Applications
