LibreSOC such and such runs fine on my Mac for now.

I’m always wary of supporting just one platform, cuz then you might end up writing poor code that gets tied to a platform at a specific version. Hec, where I used to work, we were stuck on 10 year old CentOS.

Since we’re using a lot of Python, that shouldn’t be a problem. But just as a sanity check, I like to usually build on different systems, BSD, Arch, etc…

It often helps me write better build scripts in general.
