/me is an odd developer occasionally doing odd things on OS X.
If anyone wants to improve Asterisk on any non-Linux system, a good place to start is to run it with some of the common developer flags enabled (pass --enable-dev-mode to configure, enable DO_CRASH, enable the TEST_FRAMEWORK and run the tests).
The increased warning level on GCC catches a few portability bugs, that are usually straightforward to fix. The tests can be harder, since you don’t know if it’s a problem in the test itself, or in Asterisk.
Unfortunately, I doubt the Python test suite would run on non-Linux. I don’t even bother trying to run it on Ubuntu; I have a CentOS VM specifically for running the test suite to avoid platform problems.
