Mavericks is new; I don’t know what constitutes normal for it yet. I have also already installed the command line tools, using “xcode-select --install”. I just tried running “xcode-select --install” again and it said “Can’t install the software because it is not currently available from the Software Update server.” I don’t know if that should be read as “you already have the latest version installed” or “there is an error on our server, try again later”.
