Righto, I noticed that about a minute after I posted, sorry.
Still, I'm having trouble forcing it to use gnu libtool. Bear in
mind that I've axed /opt and I've installed all gnu build tools to /
usr/local manually. But as far as libtool goes, my build appears to
be the same as that for macports:
diff /usr/local/bin/libtool /opt.del/local/bin/glibtool -- produces
Ok, so I tried the following with the following results:
1) specifying /usr/local/bin/libtool in autogen.sh
Then ./autogen.sh -> ./configure -> make results in the same error I
posted in my previous message, complete with the line about /usr/bin/
2) sudo ln -s /usr/local/bin/libtool /usr/bin/libtool
Ok, let's get nasty about it then and make SURE the native mac
libtool isn't used. ./autogen.sh -> ./configure -> make results
results in the following:
make: Entering directory `/Volumes/500GB-1S/src/gnucash/gnucash/
/bin/sh ../../libtool --tag=CC --mode=link gcc -Werror -Wdeclaration-
after-statement -Wno-pointer-sign -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -g -g -Wall -
Wunused -Wmissing-prototypes -Wmissing-declarations -Wno-unused -g -

ar cru .libs/libc-missing.a .libs/libc-missing-noop.o
ranlib: unrecognized option `-q'
Try `ranlib --help' for more information.
ar: internal ranlib command failed
Evidently 'ranlib' is a symlink to /usr/bin/libtool which now points
to my glibtool which does not have an option -q. So while I'm sure I
can hack in a '-q' to my glibtool, I think it's much more likely that
I'm missing something.
Someone please enlighten me because I'm feelin pretty dumb over here.
