If the problem you're having with building on OSX is with Xcode 5.1 and Guile hanging, pull the latest gnucash-on-osx. I just got last Thursday a patch from the Guile folks that fixes the hang; in the process I've switched to Guile2. With that I was able to build GC on Yosemite.

If you're having other problems I can probably help with that, too.
