I am trying to install ROS on my Mac. Using the instructions provided for the mac homebrew installation (obviously). I get through to step 3.1 and then get hung up on running cmake step. The configuration however does not finish. I get several warnings but only one error. Here is my report. -- +++ catkin -- Found gtest: gtests will be built.

It is failing because you don't have wxWidgets installed. Even with wxWidgets installed, I am not sure the rx stack works on OS X right now. You can skip building it by deleting the rx folder. I would recommend Electric at the moment for OS X anyways.
