For UI-related changes (xib), we still have Xcode 3 around, though. If you have any compilation problems feel free to ask me privately or on IRC - we will happily help you on that.

Hello Ron,

It is known that macports does not work well with VLC compilation, which may result in the problems you describe. You do not need to rename the /opt directory or using other hacks.
Ruling out macports from the compilation process is as easy as described here, on the osxcompile page: https://wiki.videolan.org/OSXCompile#3rd_party_packagers_and_PATH

Make sure you execute these command before _all_ compilation steps for VLC, especially even before compiling extras/tools. Then it will work fine.

With best regards,
