I'm hoping I can find some time in September, but we'll see.
I *did* get XCode installed on the machine, so that's progress.
Next step is to get jhbuild and a few other dependencies installed.

John: How hard would it be to set up jhbuild to build from released
tarballs instead of pulling from svn/git/bzm/etc?  For stable/tag
release builds I think it would be much better to be able to pull from a
stable dependency.  We can always supply a patch on top of the tarball
if necessary, like we do on Win32.
