shairport-sync on Mac OS X

Shairport Sync emulates an AirPort Express for the purpose of streaming audio from iTunes, iPods, iPhones, iPads and AppleTVs. Audio played by a Shairport Sync-powered device stays synchronised with the source and hence with similar devices playing the same source. In this way, synchronised multi-room audio is possible without difficulty. (Hence the name Shairport Sync, BTW.)

Building this on OS X is not so straightforward, so I made the homebrew formula for it.

Formula was accepted into homebrew repo, so now just run:

brew install shairport-sync

PS Building with libsoxr, libao and dns_sd
