Bug report #4297
Cmake file on MacOS is biased to use KyngChaos binaries regardless of user preferences
|Affected QGIS version:||master||Regression?:||No|
|Operating System:||Mac OS X||Easy fix?:||No|
|Pull Request or Patch supplied:||No||Resolution:||fixed/implemented|
|Crashes QGIS or corrupts data:||No||Copied to github as #:||14234|
The CMake configure file of QGis 1.7 has a lot of special blocks for the Apple platform that override any command line preferences when they detect KyngChaos precompiled binaries. These blocks must be deleted in order for QGis to compile smoothly on other MacOS environments (MacPorts, maybe Fink also).
Please add a dedicated switch to enable/disable use of those frameworks/binaries, rather than unconditionally enabling them and then overriding user choices.
Thanks a lot!

Hello, bug triage...
are you still affected by this bug ? I think that there has been an heavy work on the Mac OS port of QGIS and it is not sure that the compilation process has references to other binaries.
Can anyone confirm this bug can be closed now ?
