Ekos on Mac OS X ?

I noticed a couple of things. They might be nothing, but I thought they were worth noting. Are these no big deal?
During all the otool checking, copying of dylib's and changing @rpath and @executable paths:
Skipping Copy: libindi.1.dylib already in Frameworks
Skipping libcfitsio.5.dylib, not executable
Skipping libraw.15.dylib, not executable
During dmg build:
ERROR: no file at "/opt/local/lib/mysql55/mysql/libmysqlclient.18.dylib"
ERROR: no file at "/usr/local/lib/libpq.5.dylib"
I think those are OK
I used to be a biker (well, you don't really stop being a biker.. lol) and had my share of accidents but nothing ever got broken (just my bike and pride).
As for the DMG, are we any closer in finding out why it crashes on trying to take a picture?
I did compare Jamie's one and mine the other week and apart from the version of a dlyb, not much else is different.
Odroid C1 running indiserver (kept up-to-date with apt-get update/upgrade)
HEQ5 pro / QHY5L-II-M (OAG) / Atik 314L+ / Gerd Neumann drawer
Unfortunately since my wife's laptop has no development software on it, it is more difficult to debug difficulties too!
I have a 2012 MBA running Sierra 10.12.3 Beta with 8GB memory and a 500 GB SSD. Works like a charm with all sorts of development stuff installed - Xcode, Macports, XAMPP, VirtualBox (often running Win 7/10 or various Linux versions), etc. I have set up an INDI server on my spare PI yet, but its on my list!
So I am one step nearer to launching into the INDI world!
Essentially, I figure as long as the guider is running at a better resolution in "/px than the main scope, you're golden, especially when you figure in subpixel guiding.
I get great results with the combo, guiding the mount to within 1" most nights, or 2" if it's real windy. Best guider ever.
it seems that there is something wrong with recent builds of KStars on macOS. It builds just fine but the KStars app doesn't start. When started from the terminal, it never gets past the "Welcome to KStars 2.7.2" message. It even shows Rob's directory copy and astrometry.net dialogs but hangs afterwards.
I tried with the homebrew method as well as with the craft method on two different Macbooks but the result is always the same.
Has anyone of you tried to build KStars recently and noticed something similar?
Nevermind, I just had to restart dbus with "brew services restart dbus"
I then copied the app to 3 different Macs, and they all could run the simulator telescope, the simulator ccd, and the simulator focuser!!!!! One was Sierra, one was El Capitan, and the 3rd was my wife's El Capitan machine which doesn't have any QT, homebrew, or command line tools installed.
I have not yet tested this with real equipment on a machine that did not compile it, but I am very hopeful! I am attaching a link to the zip file containing the working app. It is not a dmg, since we will have to find out why those files were not copied by Jamie's script and we should figure out why the Sierra build gives an illegal instruction error when running on an El Capitan machine.
Please test this out!! drive.google.com/file/d/0B_ivMJINsdQ8NTl...N0E/view?usp=sharing
Note that I haven't tested everything yet, such as the download new data, nor have I looked into whether xplanet is running properly, but this is a huge leap forward!
