If someone else is paying, get an imac for your own desktop and run
anything else you need under virtualbox or hook to your work Centos
via NX or X2go.   Or use a mac mini.   OSX likes to do hardware checks
to make sure it is on Apple hardware.   I think virtualbox has some
hooks to make a virtual OSX run under real OSX by passing the hardware
check through to the hardware, but otherwise you will need some kind
of hack to bypass the check that is likely to break with updates.  I
think those hacks exist but I've never been patient enough to get
anything to work.

And if you aren't using it already, you probably want Jenkins to run
all these builds for you.
