+graphical user interface.
+
+Tested on OS X 10.5 through 10.8 on Intel processors only. PPC is not
+supported because it is big-endian.
+
+All of the commands should be executed in a Terminal application. The
+built-in one is located in `/Applications/Utilities`.
+
+Preparation
+-----------
+
+You need to install XCode with all the options checked so that the compiler
+and everything is available in /usr not just /Developer. XCode should be
+available on your OS X installation media, but if not, you can get the
+current version from https://developer.apple.com/xcode/. If you install
+Xcode 4.3 or later, you'll need to install its command line tools. This can
+be done in `Xcode > Preferences > Downloads > Components` and generally must
+be re-done or updated every time Xcode is updated.
+
+There's an assumption that you already have `git` installed, as well. If
+not, it's the path of least resistance to install Github for Mac
+(OS X 10.7+) or
+[Git for OS X](https://code.google.com/p/git-osx-installer/). It is also
+available via Homebrew or MacPorts.
+
+You will also need to install [Homebrew](http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/)
+or [MacPorts](http://www.macports.org/) in order to install library
+dependencies. It's largely a religious decision which to choose, but, as of
+December 2012, MacPorts is a little easier because you can just install the
+dependencies immediately - no other work required. If you're unsure, read
+the instructions through first in order to assess what you want to do.
+Homebrew is a little more popular among those newer to OS X.
+
+The installation of the actual dependencies is covered in the Instructions
+sections below.
+
+Instructions: MacPorts
+----------------------
+
+### Install dependencies
+
+Installing the dependencies using MacPorts is very straightforward.
+
+ sudo port install boost db48@+no_java openssl miniupnpc
+
+### Building `bitcoind`
+
+1. Clone the github tree to get the source code and go into the directory.
+
+ git clone git@github.com:bitcoin/bitcoin.git bitcoin
+ cd bitcoin
+
+2. Build bitcoind:
+
+ cd src
+ make -f makefile.osx
+
+3. It is a good idea to build and run the unit tests, too:
+
+ make -f makefile.osx test
+
+Instructions: HomeBrew
+----------------------
+
+#### Install dependencies using Homebrew
+
+ brew install boost miniupnpc openssl berkeley-db4
+
+### Building `bitcoind`
+
+1. Clone the github tree to get the source code and go into the directory.
+
+ git clone git@github.com:bitcoin/bitcoin.git bitcoin
+ cd bitcoin
+
+2. Modify source in order to pick up the `openssl` library.
+
+ Edit `makefile.osx` to account for library location differences. There's a
+ diff in `contrib/homebrew/makefile.osx.patch` that shows what you need to
+ change, or you can just patch by doing
+
+ patch -p1 < contrib/homebrew/makefile.osx.patch
+
+3. Build bitcoind:
+
+ cd src
+ make -f makefile.osx
+
+4. It is a good idea to build and run the unit tests, too:
+
+ make -f makefile.osx test
+
+Creating a release build
+------------------------
+
+A bitcoind binary is not included in the Bitcoin-Qt.app bundle. You can ignore
+this section if you are building `bitcoind` for your own use.
+
+If you are building `bitcoind` for others, your build machine should be set up
+as follows for maximum compatibility:
+
+All dependencies should be compiled with these flags:
+
+ -mmacosx-version-min=10.5 -arch i386 -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk
+
+For MacPorts, that means editing your macports.conf and setting
+`macosx_deployment_target` and `build_arch`:
+
+ macosx_deployment_target=10.5
+ build_arch=i386
+
+... and then uninstalling and re-installing, or simply rebuilding, all ports.
+
+As of December 2012, the `boost` port does not obey `macosx_deployment_target`.
+Download `http://gavinandresen-bitcoin.s3.amazonaws.com/boost_macports_fix.zip`
+for a fix. Some ports also seem to obey either `build_arch` or
+`macosx_deployment_target`, but not both at the same time. For example, building
+on an OS X 10.6 64-bit machine fails. Official release builds of Bitcoin-Qt are
+compiled on an OS X 10.6 32-bit machine to workaround that problem.
+
+Once dependencies are compiled, creating `Bitcoin-Qt.app` is easy:
+
+ make -f Makefile.osx RELEASE=1
+
+Running
+-------
+
+It's now available at `./bitcoind`, provided that you are still in the `src`
+directory. We have to first create the RPC configuration file, though.
+
+Run `./bitcoind` to get the filename where it should be put, or just try these
+commands:
+
+ echo -e "rpcuser=bitcoinrpc\nrpcpassword=$(xxd -l 16 -p /dev/urandom)" > "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf"
+ chmod 600 "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf"
+
+When next you run it, it will start downloading the blockchain, but it won't
+output anything while it's doing this. This process may take several hours.
+
+Other commands:
+
+ ./bitcoind --help # for a list of command-line options.
+ ./bitcoind -daemon # to start the bitcoin daemon.
+ ./bitcoind help # When the daemon is running, to get a list of RPC commands
