Looking for how-to make your own blender builds

I’d like to learn how-to build blender from the source and would need to know how to get started, what tools to use, where to get the code from etc… I’ve never done anything like this, so I’d really need some easy to understand tutorials/info.

I want to build a blender 2.45 OS X (PPC) version with the latest cvs (or is it svn?) code since an important bug just got fixed and this now would allow me to finally render my project… Thanks!


I’ve never done it, but I’ve read about doing it, so the best I can do is provide a link.



Thank you - that’s a start…!
