Got mine as well yesterday. Copy number xyz. (10.2.3) Did you get the same?

Ok, the Developer tool should be part of the copy.

And then you need texinfo-4.2 at least.
Automake/Autoconf are delivered with, but in version 1.6/2.5x. So you 
need a copy of this tools as well (the java tool chain.)

If you want to run tests then you also need dejagnu, expect, tcl and 
last but not least a working kernel.
I can pass you one in priv.
The deja, expect versions are from cvs, tcl is 8.4.1.

Hope I didn't forget too much.

I placed all in /usr/local/ and built it myself.

Don't forget to create enough partitions while you're at it. HFS+ or ufs.

Let me know if you're stuck.
