it looks like this is an old version of gcc that may have an issue on Big Sur now, am I able to use gcc10 to build
I know that other developers are building for the Apple M1 processor what tool chains are you using please.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Mark,

ah OK, yes I forgot about that. You can't build libgcc7, which is a dependency for virtually all of the gcc version builds, on Big Sur. That means that it is not possible to build WSJT-X on Big Sur until we get the refactoring done that works around the issues with newer gfortran versions.

Official WSJT-X builds for macOS are built on Mojave.
