I am able to compile monero on mac os x v 10.10.5 using the directions found here:



brew tap sammy007/cryptonight

brew install monero --build-from-source

But I would like to make a build that I can debug with gdb.

What is the easiest way to do this on mac os x?

I would recommend following the instructions to build from source (not using the brew package). https://github.com/monero-project/monero#compiling-monero-from-source.

Once you have the dependencies installed you just make debug in the cloned repository directory.
