Thanks for chiming in. As you’ve probably noticed by now, I replied a bit earlier with a link to my results for vexpress:

I’ll eventually be targeting BeagleBone Black (not white), but let’s get vexpress working first. I’ll happily offer patches, but right now I don’t even know where to begin. I’m an expert iOS and OS X developer, but I’m used to Xcode, not Makefiles and command-line tools.

No doubt the xargs issue (and others) are OS X-isms, and we’ll get to those, for sure.

I appreciate the help!
