[Gluster-devel] Please test GlusterFS 3.6.0 beta3 on OSX!

I've finally had 15 minutes to test this today.  Building on a fresh
Yosemite (10.10) box with XCode 6.1.

GlusterFS itself builds, however "mount_glusterfs" isn't in the right
place for a command-line mount call to work:

bne-vfxmac00:~ root# mount -t glusterfs bne-gback:/prodbackup /prodbackup

mount: exec /System/Library/Filesystems/glusterfs.fs/Contents/Resources/mount_glusterfs
for /prodbackup: No such file or directory

So I copy things to where they need to go (and make the directory for
the log file to write to), and get this (connecting to our backup
cluster running GlusterFS 3.5.2):

bne-vfxmac00:Filesystems root# mount -t glusterfs
bne-gback:/prodbackup /prodbackup

bne-vfxmac00:~ root# cat

Sadly I don't have time to dig further, as other fires have reared up
around the place, so I'll have to park this here for now.
