Hi John,

Thanks for the pyqt linking solution... I'll add it to our wiki.
If indeed you can generate a patch with what you did, it would be cool!

Cheers
Yorik

BTW, I should have mentioned that I had to set

DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/volatile/FreeCAD-r5443-ser/lib:/contrib/boost-1_47_0-ser/lib

Okay, a bit more searching, and I now have this solution:

  cd /Library/Python/2.6/site-packages
  sudo ln -s /contrib/lib/python2.6/site-packages/PyQt4 .
  sudo ln -s /contrib/lib/python2.6/site-packages/sip* .
  cd /volatile/FreeCAD-r5443-ser/bin/pivy
  cp _coin.dylib _coin.so
  cd /volatile/FreeCAD-r5443-ser/lib
  for i in *.dylib; do j=`basename $i .dylib`; cp $i $j.so; done

and now FreeCAD starts up.

So it looks like the cmake build system needs some tuning for OSX?

I may have time to generate a patch.
