This is what I expect, actual process may vary a bit.
The forest is a development forest, so while you ought to be able to
build it at any given time, it's not necessarily completely stable (i.e.,
may not pass the jcks at any given time). Until we get the
infrastructure in place to build an X11-based bundle that runs on OS X,
it won't be very useful. That'll be pretty much all makefile changes.
Once we have that plus hotspot (which we already have in hsx/hotspot-rt),
everyone except the client team (i.e., graphics team) will be able to build
and test on OS X under X11.

When we get the infrastructure for building on OS X done, vis. above.
