I'm a bit reluctant to update TeXworks.pro, since that describes
Jonathan's "official" build system. Especially as long as there is no
one definite way of building Tw for the Mac (work has been reported on a
Fink package, a homebrew package, as well as some custom/manual way).
For now, the instructions on the mailing list are specific to some
specific environments (e.g., 64 bit Intel processors on Mac 10.6), and
while they are useful for individual testing, they are not good defaults
for the official file.
That said, the preferred way for accessing Tw is through a subversion
checkout. With that, modifications to TeXworks.pro would have to be done
only once (per computer). I'd very much would like to have a guide for
this on the wiki, but no one has replied to my post of an initial draft
some time ago.
