The configure script contains

         3266       # Define CPP as follows to make autoconf work correctly.
         3267       CPP="${CC-cc} -E -no-cpp-precomp"
         3268       # Use fink packages if available.
         3269       if test -d /sw/include && test -d /sw/lib; then
         3270         GCC_TEST_OPTIONS="-I/sw/include -L/sw/lib"
         3271         CPP="${CPP} ${GCC_TEST_OPTIONS}"
         3272         NON_GCC_TEST_OPTIONS=${GCC_TEST_OPTIONS}
         3273       fi

which introduces problems:

checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc-4.2 -E -no-cpp-precomp - I/sw/include -L/sw/lib

but pkg-config finds:

        checking for pkg-config... /opt/local/bin/pkg-config
        checking for librsvg-2.0 >= 2.11.0... yes
checking RSVG_CFLAGS... -D_REENTRANT -I/usr/X11/include/cairo -I/usr/ X11/include/pixman-1 -I/usr/X11/include/freetype2 -I/usr/X11/include - I/usr/X11/include/libpng14 -I/opt/local/include/librsvg-2 -I/opt/local/ include/glib-2.0 -I/opt/local/lib/glib-2.0/include -I/opt/local/ include -I/opt/local/include/gtk-2.0 checking RSVG_LIBS... -L/usr/X11/lib -L/opt/local/lib -lrsvg-2 - lgdk_pixbuf-2.0 -lm -lcairo -lgobject-2.0 -lgmodule-2.0 -lgthread-2.0 - lglib-2.0 -lintl -lpixman-1 -lfontconfig -lexpat -lfreetype -liconv - lpng14 -lz -lXrender -lX11 -lxcb -lXau -lXdmcp

Which of the different versions of libfreetype and its C header files will be found at compile time and which shared libraries later at run time?

Why can't these lines in configure be simply removed? Those using Fink or MacPorts or another package management system for Mac OS X can set CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS accordingly. Otherwise configure could use, on Mac OS X or Darwin, --with-fink or --with-macports or --with-rudix or --with-homebrew or --with-ios or ... Anyway, Fink seems to be the most flexible system.

Another remark: Since Apple provides only an old X11 distribution and X server, from the MacPorts side come an installer package with a more up-to-date X11 distribution and on top of this often updated X servers. Of course this software uses libraries and header files from the MacPorts distribution. On Leopard (Mac OS X 10.5) and Snow Leopard (Mac OS X 10.6) MacPorts are more important than Fink and others.
