I am trying to run kivy on Mac and it relies on my Xcode arm gcc compiler.

I already tryied to answer this question in a stackoverflow question but here I we again...

Where to find the arm apple llvm gcc compiler in the new XCode 5?

  • In case my pointing out the gcc that ships with Xcode isn't what you seek, what is it that you are really trying to do? – bmike Sep 23 '13 at 12:47
  • The thing is: XCode 4.x used to come with the LLVM GCC compiler. BUT Xcode5 does not contain it, according to the Apple website. So how to install or point to a gcc compiler (in my case, one that compiles for ARM platform)?? I alrady added this issue to the kivy ios github page – marcelosalloum Sep 23 '13 at 12:55

Apple stopped shipping gcc with Xcode.

The clang compiler presents itself as gcc (technically I believe it's an llvm front end that respects many gcc flags) when you install Xcode from the Mac App Store:

Mac:~ me$ xcrun --find gcc
/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/gcc
Mac:~ me$ `xcrun --find gcc` --version
Configured with: --prefix=/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr --with-gxx-include-dir=/usr/include/c++/4.2.1
Apple LLVM version 5.0 (clang-500.2.76) (based on LLVM 3.3svn)
Target: x86_64-apple-darwin12.5.0
Thread model: posix

If you need a different compiler, you'll likely need to download it elsewhere or build it from source.
