Re: problem building on macos

I do a most of my day-to-day development on Snow Leopard, so I know this can be made to work.
Are you building OIIO by checking out the "external" project and trying to build the whole thing? If so, that may be more trouble than it's worth. The "external" project is not needed, it serves mainly to guarantee to be the same dependency versions among all developers, independent of anything else installed on the system, or for people who lack permissions to install the packages in the right places in their system.
I would get rid of the "external" project and just compile OIIO straight -- it will find the dependencies it needs in your system. The only ones it really needs in order to be useful for OSL are boost, libtiff, ilmbase, and openexr, and it's pretty easy to install those with Macports if you don't already have them on your system. (OIIO's build system will handle other missing dependencies by just not building the parts that need them -- typically plugins for other image formats, none of which are especially useful for OSL's texturing.)
Another alternative is to post to the OIIO list and attach the actual output. ("libtiff doesn't build" is a tad vague, maybe it's an easy fix we can suggest.)
