You are too kind! It is not, and the list of missing ingredients varies by platform.

This is expected. I started an Admin Guide that has only one section so far, so isn't yet linked from anywhere, but does contain build dependency info:

For Postgres, we are less strict about accepting an installed version than we should be; we only check for the presence of the "postgres" command in the current $PATH:
On the other hand, I don't believe we have intentionally used any "new" Postgres features, and I don't recall anyone ever reporting that an existing Postgres was insufficient.
Look elsewhere in the above file to see what we do for other C based dependencies.
> It may be that the SVN error would also occur if your build system built libsasl . I've not investigated this.

I think the secretly documented steps should work.

Building CalendarServer on != OS X is an achievement. I should make a little digital award...
