$ Maverick upgrade notes

There are no big changes when it comes to language support and language technology in Maverick compared to Mountain Lion. The few points to mention:

Changes to the development tools

The most important change is that XCode 5 under Maverick has no visible option for installing command line tools. Instead one must use a command line tool with a specific option:

xcode-select --install

The benefit of this is that one does not have to download and install the XCode package at all, which also means that there is no need to create an iTunes account just to get the command line tools.

HFST compilation issues

Another effect of changes to the compilation of third party tools is that the configure and make commands have to be slightly modified for Hfst to build:

./configure --without-foma --with-unicode-handler=glib --enable-all-tools \
    CXXFLAGS="-I/usr/include/c++/4.2.1" LDFLAGS=" -stdlib=libstdc++"


For general info on how to build HFST, see this page.
