[Qemu-devel] Call for build instructions for FreeBSD and MacOSX

I was looking at fixing a FreeBSD compile failure yesterday and I spent
a lot of time trying to figure out building on a system that I'm not
very familiar with. Today I'm having a quick look at extending the
Travis build to MacOSX.

In both cases I'm not getting very far and I notice we only really have
decent build instructions on the wiki for Linux and Win32:


Could I implore the greater community to think about putting up some
simple instructions for people that are not familiar with these systems.
It will help *you* in the long run ;-)

FWIW on FreeBSD I ended up:
  * running make on the /usr/ports qemu to bring in dependencies
  * ./configure --disable-nettle (the script seems to miss this)
  * use gmake

I'm not sure if this is the right way but I did manage to reproduce the
failure that had been reported.

On MacOSX I could really do with knowing:
  * What Xcode/compiler should work
  * How are dependencies installed? (brew?)
  * Any special configure options needed?

Thanks in advance,

Alex Bennée
