After making sure pkg-config is available, download and install OSXFuse from (MacFUSE compatibility layer must selected)
+The script available under "src/Build" performs the
+full build of VeraCrypt including the creation of the installer pkg. It expects
+to find the wxWidgets 3.0.2 sources at the same level as where you put
+VeraCrypt sources (e.i. if "src" path is "/Users/joe/Projects/VeraCrypt/src"
+then wxWidgets should be at "/Users/joe/Projects/wxWidgets-wxWidgets-3.0.2")
+The build process uses Code Signing certificates whose ID is specified in
+src/Main/Main.make (lines 167 & 169). You'll have to modify these lines to put
+the ID of your Code Signing certificates or comment them if you don't have one.
+Because of incompatibility issues with OSXFUSE, the SDK 10.9 generates a
+VeraCrypt binary that has issues communicating with the OSXFUSE kernel extension.
+Thus, we recommend to use the SDK 10.8 or earlier for building VeraCrypt.
