Follow-up Comment #1:

Thanks for the detailed installation log. The error in the log shows that the
failure is most likely due to the 'rpcgen' program on your system. On a
GNU/Linux system 'rpcgen' is provided by GNU libc, on your system it looks
like it is provided by clang.

The instrument control package tries to call 'rpcgen -M <filename>' as part of
its build procedure. The '-M' option says 'generate MT-safe code' on my
GNU/Linux system, but it looks like it's not a supported option on your
system. Is there another version of 'rpcgen' installed on your system that you
can arrange to be called instead of this one?

That's the error and the explanation for why installation fails. I can't say
whether this is a bug, whether you need to do something on your system to use
a different version of rpcgen, or how important the '-M' option is. You can
certainly modify the makefile yourself and try using the package with the '-M'
option removed. Or you can modify the top level makefile to bypass building
the vxi11 directory altogether, if you don't care about the VXI-11 interface.
