Re: [Bug-gnubg] Compile error on MacOS 10.5.2

When I couldn't get GnuBG to compile on my Mac, I decided to port GnuBG to CMake. I only needed the command-line version for my project, so I didn't carry on to make it compile the GUI, but CMake does a much better job of cross-platform compilation than autotools, and the files are much easier to configure too, so if anyone's interested in continuing the port, please do get in touch.

One question I have, and it may have been related to the pango fix. Where
did you install Fink? Is it in a directory that happens to contain ".a"
(Without the quotes) somewhere in the path? I seem to recall now the pango issue may have been because I was building into a path that has GnuBG.app in
the middle of it (/Applications/GnuBG.app/Contents/MacOS/fink). I think
there was a SED bug in a script that incorrectly transforms the ".a" in the middle to something else (The intent was that they were trying to rename
some files with .a extensions to .la .

Fink is in /sw, pango in /sw/include/pango-1.0/.

If you have installed fink into a place other than the default you could try
seeing what happens if you build using the default install paths.

I didn't change anything.

Hi Achim,

when you get things working, perhaps you could add to the INSTALL file with instructions for people wanting to build gnubg on macs.
