Compiling Stockfish on Mac OS X
You should be running a relatively recent version of OS X.
Open Terminal and enter the following commands:
git clone https://github.com/official-stockfish/Stockfish.git cd Stockfish/src make build ARCH=x86-64 make strip
If you do not have some of the necessary tools installed, OS X will prompt you to download and install them automatically.
The final binary is named "stockfish" and located in the src folder.
