Building Static Link Version of OpenCV

If you want to build it from source code, you can do by next steps.

  1. Building OpenCV 2.1 requiers CMake. You can easily install it by using MacPorts.

    % sudo port install cmake
  2. Clone this project from, then move into the project directory

    % git clone git://
  3. Download the source code for OpenCV from Sourceforge. Save OpenCV-2.1.0.tar.bz2 into the project root.

  4. Use the provided Makefile:

    % make

This will extract the downloaded archive, apply a patch to the OpenCV code, generate appropriate cmakefile suport using the script, and finally make the static libraries for simulator and device.

Build support script

Build support script has some options to build OpenCV with iOS SDK. Try --help option to get the all options of it.
