reformat OS X build instrcs, add 10.8 + Homebrew

* reformatted the entire document to look pretty in both standard text and
  Markdown
* incorporated [my OS X 10.8 build instructions with Homebrew as the package
  manager](http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/3672/trouble-compiling-bitcoind-on-osx-with-homebrew/5253#5253)
* incorporated @gavinandresen's MacPorts and release build instructions based on
  an earlier revision of this commit
* added makefile patch necessary for Homebrew compilation to `contrib`

Notes
-----

See `doc/readme-qt.rst` for instructions on building Bitcoin-Qt, the
graphical user interface.

Tested on OS X 10.5 through 10.8 on Intel processors only. PPC is not
supported because it is big-endian.

All of the commands should be executed in a Terminal application. The
built-in one is located in `/Applications/Utilities`.

Preparation
-----------

You need to install XCode with all the options checked so that the compiler
and everything is available in /usr not just /Developer. XCode should be
available on your OS X installation media, but if not, you can get the
current version from https://developer.apple.com/xcode/. If you install
Xcode 4.3 or later, you'll need to install its command line tools. This can
be done in `Xcode > Preferences > Downloads > Components` and generally must
be re-done or updated every time Xcode is updated.

There's an assumption that you already have `git` installed, as well. If
not, it's the path of least resistance to install Github for Mac
(OS X 10.7+) or
[Git for OS X](https://code.google.com/p/git-osx-installer/). It is also
available via Homebrew or MacPorts.

You will also need to install [Homebrew](http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/)
or [MacPorts](http://www.macports.org/) in order to install library
dependencies. It's largely a religious decision which to choose, but, as of
December 2012, MacPorts is a little easier because you can just install the
dependencies immediately - no other work required. If you're unsure, read
the instructions through first in order to assess what you want to do.
Homebrew is a little more popular among those newer to OS X.

The installation of the actual dependencies is covered in the Instructions
sections below.

Instructions: MacPorts
----------------------

### Install dependencies

Installing the dependencies using MacPorts is very straightforward.

sudo port install boost db48@+no_java openssl miniupnpc

### Building `bitcoind`

1. Clone the github tree to get the source code and go into the directory.

git clone git@github.com:bitcoin/bitcoin.git bitcoin
cd bitcoin

2. Build bitcoind:

cd src
make -f makefile.osx

3. It is a good idea to build and run the unit tests, too:

make -f makefile.osx test

Instructions: HomeBrew
----------------------

#### Install dependencies using Homebrew

brew install boost miniupnpc openssl berkeley-db4

### Building `bitcoind`

1. Clone the github tree to get the source code and go into the directory.

git clone git@github.com:bitcoin/bitcoin.git bitcoin
cd bitcoin

2. Modify source in order to pick up the `openssl` library.

Edit `makefile.osx` to account for library location differences. There's a
diff in `contrib/homebrew/makefile.osx.patch` that shows what you need to
change, or you can just patch by doing

patch -p1 < contrib/homebrew/makefile.osx.patch

3. Build bitcoind:

cd src
make -f makefile.osx

4. It is a good idea to build and run the unit tests, too:

make -f makefile.osx test

Creating a release build
------------------------

A bitcoind binary is not included in the Bitcoin-Qt.app bundle. You can ignore
this section if you are building `bitcoind` for your own use.

If you are building `bitcoind` for others, your build machine should be set up
as follows for maximum compatibility:

All dependencies should be compiled with these flags:

-mmacosx-version-min=10.5 -arch i386 -isysroot /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk

For MacPorts, that means editing your macports.conf and setting
`macosx_deployment_target` and `build_arch`:

macosx_deployment_target=10.5
build_arch=i386

... and then uninstalling and re-installing, or simply rebuilding, all ports.

As of December 2012, the `boost` port does not obey `macosx_deployment_target`.
Download `http://gavinandresen-bitcoin.s3.amazonaws.com/boost_macports_fix.zip`
for a fix. Some ports also seem to obey either `build_arch` or
`macosx_deployment_target`, but not both at the same time. For example, building
on an OS X 10.6 64-bit machine fails. Official release builds of Bitcoin-Qt are
compiled on an OS X 10.6 32-bit machine to workaround that problem.

Once dependencies are compiled, creating `Bitcoin-Qt.app` is easy:

make -f Makefile.osx RELEASE=1

Running
-------

It's now available at `./bitcoind`, provided that you are still in the `src`
directory. We have to first create the RPC configuration file, though.

Run `./bitcoind` to get the filename where it should be put, or just try these
commands:

echo -e "rpcuser=bitcoinrpc\nrpcpassword=$(xxd -l 16 -p /dev/urandom)" > "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf"
chmod 600 "/Users/${USER}/Library/Application Support/Bitcoin/bitcoin.conf"

When next you run it, it will start downloading the blockchain, but it won't
output anything while it's doing this. This process may take several hours.

Other commands:

./bitcoind --help # for a list of command-line options.
./bitcoind -daemon # to start the bitcoin daemon.
./bitcoind help # When the daemon is running, to get a list of RPC commands

Mac OS X bitcoind build instructions
Laszlo Hanyecz <solar@heliacal.net>

See readme-qt.rst for instructions on building Bitcoin-Qt, the
graphical user interface.

Tested on 10.5, 10.6 and 10.7 intel. PPC is not supported because it's big-endian.

All of the commands should be executed in Terminal.app.. it's in
/Applications/Utilities

You need to install XCode with all the options checked so that the compiler and
everything is available in /usr not just /Developer. XCode should be available on your OS X
install DVD, but if not, you can get the current version from https://developer.apple.com/xcode/


1. Clone the github tree to get the source code:

git clone git@github.com:bitcoin/bitcoin.git bitcoin

2. Download and install MacPorts from http://www.macports.org/

2a. (for 10.7 Lion)
Edit /opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf and uncomment "build_arch i386"

3. Install dependencies from MacPorts

sudo port install boost db48 openssl miniupnpc

Optionally install qrencode (and set USE_QRCODE=1):
sudo port install qrencode

4. Now you should be able to build bitcoind:

cd bitcoin/src
make -f makefile.osx

Run:
./bitcoind --help # for a list of command-line options.
Run
./bitcoind -daemon # to start the bitcoin daemon.
Run
./bitcoind help # When the daemon is running, to get a list of RPC commands
