Mac OS X Installation Guide

In OSX environment the intercept-build tool from scan-build is used to log the compiler invocations.

It is possible that the intercept-build can not log the compiler calls without turning off System Integrity Protection (SIP). intercept build can automatically detect if SIP is turned off.

You can turn off SIP on El Capitan this way:

  • Click the  (Apple) menu.
  • Select Restart...
  • Hold down command-R to boot into the Recovery System.
  • Click the Utilities menu and select Terminal.
  • Type csrutil disable and press return.
  • Close the Terminal app.
  • Click the  (Apple) menu and select Restart....
