Glad you got it working! I'm not sure if gtk-osx still uses jhbuild 
shell (it probably does for building it and dependencies) but it at 
least provides a full environment to build GTK+ apps on OS X. There were 
also some related packages from the same group (Imendio) to build OS X 
application packages, a more OS X-alike GTK+ theme, and an integration 
package to use the OS X menu bar and Dock.

It was enough to get the look-and-feel just about right, but again I 
don't know how much progress has been made on those side-projects.

Happy hacking! :)
