Mac-only package use of xcodebuild?
As Enigmail is moving to only support gpg2, I decided to give it a
try on my Mac. I encountered plenty of problems, which I will not go
through here, but one of the really annoying issue was that it told me
that a (sub)key had expired (the key worked fine with gpg 1.x). The
problem actually turned out to be that it couldn't run the configured
pinentry program. (Very helpful error message).
I worked around it by installing MacGPG2 and using its pinentry-mac,
but I would prefer to have to install MacGPG2. It looks like the
pinentry-mac program is a stand-alone project on github and as such
could "easily" be made into a package, but its makefile runs xcodebuild
to build the binary.
What is the proper way to import such packages? Are there any prior
cases where project makefiles call platform-specific build tools? Or is
it expected that one writes a new build system which honors the pkgsrc
