I'm answering this same question quite a bit in private and hope you
don't mind me adding the list on cc. (I hope those on the list don't

It currently doens't build on any BSD, but some of these patches below

http://www.netbsd.org/~joerg/pathscale.diff # For hg to git
http://pastie.org/private/cninatdq83krfy9dxagfnw # For gcc-4.1+ build
