Ah, but I do have slib installed--version 2d6-1. But configure (or
g-wrap) is unable to find the scheme library.
Information about 2425 packages read in 14 seconds.
i slib 2d6-1 Portable scheme library
slib-gu14 2d6-1 Portable scheme library for guile
i slib-gu16 2d6-1 Portable scheme library for guile16
I waded through a fair number of google searches. Since I wish to use
default installations for as many components as possible, I tried
setting SCHEME_LIBRARY_PATH prior to running autogen, but that didn't
work. I finally opted to _manually_ create the link
out point 2.)
The only other thing I ran into I had was that the Berkey DB package
db4 isn't listed in the README as a dependency.
At this point I'm configured and dealing with minor compilation errors:
- deprecated atoll() vs strtoll()
- "`scm_num2long' makes integer from pointer without a cast".
The bottom line is that building the CVS HEAD on Mac OS X/Darwin
requires the following:
Recognize that the installation tree descends from "/sw"
Dependencies not required by 1.8.7: db4
Installation tree modification: ln -s /sw/share/slib /sw/share/guile/
Environment variables set _before_ running autogen.sh:
All-in-all, a pretty short list :)
