[vbox-dev] Sketch of how to build on OSX 10.9?

It seems the source tree has support for OSX 10.7 (Lion) but not later
versions of OSX.

Could someone provide a sketch of what would be required to make my
OSX 10.9 system capable of building VirtualBox for OSX from source?

Would I be better off editing the source to allow it to build against
the 10.9 SDKs or, alternatively, trying to find copies of the earlier
SDKs and building against those?

Has anyone managed to build it on a system that only has homebrew as
distinct from MacPorts? I understand TeX is problematic with homebrew
systems. Can MacTex be substituted as required?
