Need help building a deployable OSSEC package

Our security team is wanting us to install OSSEC on Macs. As best I can tell, I can take the unix installer and install it, but it requires Xcode (or another compiler) to be installed. I don't believe it makes a distribution package either, just installs it on that machine. Obviously, I don't want to deploy Xcode to 1300 machines for this purpose.

Anybody had any experience with deploying OSSEC?

I haven't deployed OSSEC, but if the only thing which is needed is gcc to compile it, you may be able to use the Xcode Command Line Tools for that. Those are available via the Software Update feed.

I have a script for installing the Xcode CLI Tools available from here:

@jwojda Did you ever get this Deployed? I'd like to do something similar at my shop.

Thanks!
