What I'm saying is that you cannot build Mac OS X, Apple will not permit 
that. If you wan't to install X Code, you have to script apple's installer 
to do it. That is 2nd fiddle.

I applaud this. But I think calling that profile "macos" is a misnomer. 
That's why I suggested calling upstream darwin, "ppc-darwin". The fact 
that it isn't called macos doesn't imply macos and macos packages cannot 
be supported on it.
