Mac OS 10.6.4 dependencies
Hi -- thanks for adding the instructions at Development/BuildingOnMac. I added a short comment at the automake section to provide a workaround for a problem I encountered. Now I ran into another problem in the last section -- the URL provided for Hunspell doesn't work for me, but I couldn't figure out how else to make it work on the command line. If I go to http://sourceforge.net/projects/hunspell/files/Hunspell in the browser to get a new "direct download link", that doesn't work with curl either. The only way I can download that file is in the browser. I didn't comment on this in the wiki because I didn't find a workaround (other than downloading in the browser instead) and I'm not sure whether I'm doing something wrong. (I enclosed the URL in single quotes -- the way it's written in the instructions the special characters aren't escaped for the shell.) Joriki 2011-01-03T17:50:54 (CET)
environment variables for Mac OS 10.6.5
Hi again -- I continued the build process (under Mac OS 10.6.5) by trying to run autogen.sh, and ran into two problems, both of which I fixed by setting environment variables:
- configure complained about my version of gcc, 4.2 -- solution: export CC=/usr/bin/gcc-4.0
- configure couldn't find Python headers -- solution: export CPPFLAGS=-I/System/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.6/include/python2.6
With those two changes autogen completed normally. I don't know how "bold" to be about putting this in the wiki, since I'm not sure how specific the problem is to my configuration. Is there a page specifically for building under Mac OS or Snow Leopard (other than for the dependencies)?
