Building dogecoin-qt 1.14 on modern macs.

Note that this requires changes made by michilumin on the 1.14-dev branch as well as some changes to BDB.

Tested on OSX 10.11 El Capitan, 10.13 High Sierra and 11.1 Big Sur.

Paper wallet printing support seems to work fine through this method as well.

Clone dogecoin locally, or check it out, etc.

For this purpose, just indicating the 1.14-branding branch in my repo.

$git clone -b 1.14-branding --single-branch

Set up OSX basic build dependencies.

Install xcode-select commandline utils.

$xcode-select --install

note: If you have Xcode installed, simply zip it up and move it for this process, as your current Xcode install will likely conflict. Unzip it back later.

Make sure frameworks dir is properly owned...

$sudo mkdir /usr/local/Frameworks
$sudo chown $(whoami):admin /usr/local/Frameworks

Install Brew. (If you already have Brew installed, perform a 'brew update'.)

$/usr/bin/ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL"

Install dependencies via Brew.

$brew install autoconf automake libtool miniupnpc openssl pkg-config protobuf qt5 zeromq qrencode librsvg boost

Install Boost lib via Brew from source, and link it to be sure:

note Boost version may have changed by the time you're reading this, from 167.

$brew install boost --build-from-source --HEAD
$brew link boost167

Get, Patch And Compile BDB 5.3

Download bdb 5.3.28 source from Oracle.

$curl -o db-5.3.28.tar.gz
$tar xvfz db-5.3.28.tar.gz
$cd db-5.3.28

Build BDB 5.3.28

$cd ../.. 
$cd build_unix
$../dist/configure CXX=clang++ --enable-cxx
$sudo mkdir /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.3
$sudo chown $(whoami):admin /usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.3
$sudo make install
$export LDFLAGS=-L/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.3/lib
$export CPPFLAGS=-I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.3/include

NOTE: for MacOS BigSur (11.1) or later, and possibly Catalina (10.15) you will also have to include the "OBJC_OLD_DISPATCH_PROTOTYPES=1" flag.

So in this case you want the above export to be:

$export CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/local/BerkeleyDB.5.3/include -DOBJC_OLD_DISPATCH_PROTOTYPES=1"

(Note that the quotes are required.)

$export INCPATHS=-I/usr/local/opt/openssl/include
$export LIBPATHS=-L/usr/local/opt/openssl/lib
$cd /usr/local/include 
$ln -s ../opt/openssl/include/openssl 

Go back to your Dogecoin repo

$cd ~/dogecoin
$./configure --with-gui=qt5 --with-qrcode=yes

Go have a beverage.

$make install

Go have another beverage.

Run it.
