McCoy includes binary components required for working with cryptographic keys. This means that it is necessary to build using the Mozilla build system. The rest of this page assumes you have an understanding of how to build a Mozilla app, preferable XULRunner.

Initial Requirements

McCoy must be built against the Gecko 1.9 SDK, you can download this from Extract it wherever you like. For OSX universal builds you need both SDKs, for normal OSX builds just the i386 SDK is needed. If you need to build McCoy on a powerpc Mac then you will need to create your own SDKs.

You must checkout a copy of the Mozilla trunk with XULRunner (MOZ_CO_PROJECT=xulrunner), see getting the source code by CVS for further information.

You must also checkout a copy of McCoy into mozilla/mccoy. To do this from the mozilla directory type:

 hg clone

If you wish to build a specific version of mccoy then change to the mccoy directory and hg update -C <tag>

Regular Builds

For most platforms McCoy can be built using a single mozconfig:

 . $topsrcdir/mccoy/config/mozconfig
 mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/../mccoyobj
 ac_add_options --with-libxul-sdk=$topsrcdir/../xulrunner-sdk

Change the paths as appropriate.

To package up McCoy change to mccoyobj and type make package

OSX Universal Builds

This requires a slightly more complicated mozconfig and requires both i386 and powerpc sdks to be available:

 . $topsrcdir/mccoy/config/mozconfig
 . $topsrcdir/build/macosx/universal/mozconfig
 ac_add_app_options ppc --enable-prebinding
 mk_add_options MOZ_OBJDIR=@TOPSRCDIR@/../mccoyobj
 ac_add_app_options ppc  --with-libxul-sdk=$topsrcdir/../xulrunner-sdk/powerpc
 ac_add_app_options i386 --with-libxul-sdk=$topsrcdir/../xulrunner-sdk/i386
