Compile Synergy for Mac

brew install cmake
# install Qt from web installer

# add Qt to PATH (e.g. /Users/abradley/Qt/5.8/clang_64/bin)
# Test it
which qmake
qmake --version

git clone
cd synergy
git checkout no-license-manager

# Edit ./ext/toolchain/; change "frameworkRootDir" to be the path to your Qt lib directory (e.g. /Users/abradley/Qt/5.8/clang_64/lib)

./ conf -g 1 --mac-sdk 10.12 --mac-identity Sierra
./ build

# Mac app is at ./bin/

# If you make a mistake or need to start over, clean up first:
./ clean
rm -r ./build
rm -r ./bin
