I've updated the wiki to add a short set of instructions for using
the packaging/macosx/native-gtk/build-gtk.sh script in the Inkscape
repository to build a native-gtk dependencies tree and Inkscape
itself.  As it says there, this is relatively untested process, so
there may be a few issues.

Eric, If you do have problems using that script then please send me
an email detailing the issue and I will update the script accordingly.
