Have to admit that I really like it much better than all the Mapnik styles I've tried. Is this https://www.mapbox.com/maps/outdoors/ OSM, or are they using some additional data source?

Looks too good to me to be OSM.

/me curses at the stupid build system.

I am currently toying with the Bluetooth protocol on a Garmin Fenix I got secondhand and I would enjoy something like this to render my little walks

I've checked an are I have mapped for OSM and I'm pretty certain it is just filtered & styled OSM data with some height model for contours (SRTM or the other infrared image based one ?).

Are they still using that NPM based abomination ?

Technically, if they filtered the data somehow, they are forced to give it back with the same license, right? That's my understanding of http://www.openstreetmap.org/copyright

My perusal of the source code hasn't yet found exactly how are you supposed to feed actual map data to it.

Seems like. But the configure-like script they ship depends on some kind of package manager they made called Mason , and for some reason it actually tries to install a bunch of libraries I already have (from a random website!).

I suspect It'd be better+easier to setup a Ubuntu VM to test it around (and see if I can replicate the output I get from their website).

Yep. It's OSM + various data sources for height.

The Mapbox Qt SDK is likely to be bound to Mapbox APIs, but Mapbox releases most of what they do as free software and their vector tiles are an open standard. I don't know what the whole stack to render vector maps is, but see e.g. the list of Mapbox vector tile spec implementations.
