I see that current OS X toolchain is old ~ Aug 2015. My Idea is - if anybody can provides me more information about sources and environment. I could try to build Intel Edison actual toolchain for OS X and publish it.
I see that there isn't possibility to build toolchain on OS X host directly (it is sun rice by hans). I need Linux host, OS X SDK and Yocto SDK with patches.
There is short instruction for meta-intel-edison (but it is step number 2):
But I think that branch must be `daisy`
That is configuration (It could be helpful):
Configured with: /jenkins_builder/workspace/EDSN_ToolChain-OSX/build/tmp/work-shared/gcc-4.8.2-r0/gcc-4.8.2/configure
Any way, first step it is Linux development environment. If anybody has virtual machine disk, please tell me. It could really help to build new toolchain for OS X.

Qapular is a third party tool that is not officially supported (The supported IDEs can be found in https://software.intel.com/en-us/iot/software/ide). However they mention in their official website (http://qapular.com/) that they support Edison, therefore I suggest you to contact them in order to get a more accurate response. You can contact them in http://qapular.com/contact/.
Dear Peter, you didn't understand me correctly. I am Qapular IDE developer.
I am working on GUI IDE for OS X. The problem is:
- the current OS X toolchain for Edison is old;
- the current OS X toolchain for Edison is compiled without an important property.
My question is:
- will intel's engineers provide the newest toolchain?
- could they add the right OS X property?
- could they provide any guide on how to build OS X toolchain by myself?
Can't you build the toolchain the way that is described in the Yocto documentation?
source oe-init-build-env ../build_edison/
I did it.
To build toolchain from the source:
1) iMac + VirtualBox + Ubuntu 15.04.
2) On Ubuntu:
sudo apt-get install build-essential git diffstat gawk chrpath texinfo libtool gcc-multilib screen
3) Sources and instructions:
4) 3 hours.
