Any OS X users who have experience with compiling C++ applications?

I’m looking for community members who have experience compiling C++ applications on OS X. I’ve run into a roadblock trying to statically compile the latest version of the Nu daemon on OS X 10.9+ systems while using Homebrew to manage dependencies (it builds fine locally).

Additionally, I have a few ideas for improving the build process but I only have a narrow understanding of how a lot of the current build process works. Having one or more fellow knowledgeable Mac users available to bounce ideas off of would be awesome.

I can’t offer anything other than my undying love and appreciation at this point, but if you’re someone who is able to help, please get in contact with me. I can work on figuring out how efforts can be compensated in NBT or NSR.
