eldentyrell on IRC reports that the Mac release of 0.5 does not contain a bitcoind binary.

If I recall correctly, 0.4 and 0.3.* and all previous Mac release didn't include a bitcoind binary, either.

Given the very small number of people who have noticed, this isn't high on my personal priority list...


Would be nice to have it, but Json-RPC will probably suffice for now.

bitcoind 0.5.x, starting with 0.5.6rc3 and 0.6.x starting with 0.6.3 include a deterministic Mac build. Unfortunately, bitcoind 0.7 does not build with the Mac OS X 10.5 toolchain (which is what I compiled for gitian), so until I manage to make a LLVM-based cross-compiler you'll have to stick to the new Debug window interface and JSON-RPC.

We now have a bitcoind in Mac releases, so this can be closed.

Yup, fixed by #4727

I have 0.9.3 and there are no other executable files in the application directory other than Bitcoin-Qt which accepts no command line parameters.

0.9.3 is old. Upgrade to 0.10.

Also, Bitcoin-Qt does accept command line parameters. Just pass --args first

Thanks, I had just downloaded 0.9.3 form the site, should I have gotten it from github...
