Build projectM on OSX

This is my second attempt at building projectM on OSX.

Since the last time I attempted, MacPorts has increased some version, my confidence in *nix has increased (not sure if my skills have progressed with it).

Download prerequisites:

1) download and install the latest package from the macports site.

2) download and build pulseaudio (source):

git clone git://anongit.freedesktop.org/pulseaudio/pulseaudio
git clone git://github.com/zonque/PulseAudioOSX.git
cd PulseAudioOSX/deploy
./bootstrap_machine.sh #this will take a very long time (as in seriously long time, 30+ minutes)
cd PulseAudioOSX/deploy
./deploy.sh #breaks repeatedly... no idea how to progress
cd PulseAudioOSX/deploy/output
ls -al

2b) instead of pulse, I’m trying jack.
Download latest from http://www.jackosx.com/

3) download projectM:

git clone http://git.code.sf.net/p/projectm/code projectm-code
cd projectm-code/src
ccmake .
#hit C
#make some changes (as necessary)... our master plan is to be able to route system audio to projectM 
#hit G
make && make install
