[Lazarus] I'm looking for experience about OSX

Forgot to mention:

This list of commands builds the x86_64 and 'merges' the installation 
into the default i386 installation: (I do this in two steps so that the 
original installation does not get corrupted)

   make clean buildbase CPU_TARGET=x86_64 INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/2.7.1
   make install buildbase CPU_TARGET=x86_64 INSTALL_PREFIX=$HOME/2.7.1
   mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/fpc/
   sudo cp -r $HOME/2.7.1/lib/fpc/2.7.1 /usr/local/lib/fpc/
   sudo cp $HOME/2.7.1/bin/fpc /usr/local/lib/fpc/2.7.1/ # this is not 
strictly necessary
   rm -rf $HOME/2.7.1

And this builds a linux crosscompiler:

   CROSSOPT="-O- -gw2"
   make clean buildbase CROSSINSTALL=1 OS_TARGET=linux CPU_TARGET=i386 
   sudo make installbase CROSSINSTALL=1 OS_TARGET=linux CPU_TARGET=i386 

when you replace 'buildbase' with 'all' you should be able to get a more 
complete build, for my needs buildbase is sufficient.
