I tried building Survex 1.2.38 from source. The version of wxWidgets that it downloads defaults to an older version of the OSX SDK, which is not included in the current version of Xcode.

Build gets further if I export an environment variable as follows:


That at least allows wxWidgets to build. Configuration in the buildmacosx.sh file needs updating.

The buildmacosx.sh script isn't really maintained now we have the homebrew formula (though the latter is also broken right now, but that should be fixed soon). I was planning to remove it fairly soon, though if someone with a Mac wants to step up to maintain it, I'm happy to keep it around.

The homebrew package is now working again, so please use that instead. Instructions are here:
