Indeed it should always build. Really OS X is Tier 1 platform and as
such should have a build bot. I'm trying to get Futurice's OS X machine
setup as a Harbormaster node but technology has a way of fighting back.

Regardless, it would be quite helpful if you could file a bug
documenting these. By the way, do you recall when you started seeing
these failures?
