Good to know. I’ve fixed cmakelists for OS X, will post patches shortly to -commits.

Thanks for your help,

In the past I've been able to build on OS X with cmake/ninja, configure/make, and the Xcode project files.  Since there was recently some motion on those, my guess would be that one or more of the build systems wasn't kept up to date.  I think on OS X the canonical build system is the Xcode setup.
