I'm a MacOS user and lapsed *BSD committer.  The majority of MacOS users working with RTEMS will have a VM that they will use for RTEMS development.

The homebrew and macports solutions to obtain compatible packages only complicate the issue.  How many Mac users who are working on RTEMS can't work in a VM running CentOS, and how many don't have a machine that allows that?  Let me know if I'm wrong.

This is different from e.g. mingw support, where I think the tools need to work as plug-ins.
