Re: GNUstep won't install on Mac OS X 10.3.8

Installing onto MacOSX requires a bit more setup than normal. The main thing is that you need to install an FSF version of gcc, since the Apple gcc will not compile GNUstep properly. gcc also comes with libffi, so install that as well (sometimes it is not installed automatically). See this for more information:

OK, the script has stopped complaining about the graphics libraries allegedly not being present since I set CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS as environment variables (via editing ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist so they were known to all shell programs). However, InstallGNUstep still complains:
E155 Error
Darwin/PPC (Mac OP X) systems require libffi, but there is no libffi
installed. Please install this before installing GNUstep
E281 Error
I don't seem to be able to use your Objective-C compiler to produce
working binaries! Please check your Objective-C compiler installation.
For gcc-3.0.x make sure that your compiler's libgcc_s and libobjc
can be found by the dynamic linker - usually that requires you to add
the directory given by gcc -print-file-name=libobjc.so to your
LD_LIBRARY_PATH or /etc/ld.so.conf.
Please refer to your compiler installation instructions for more help.

The latter is despite having defined LD_LIBRARY_PATH as the result of gcc -print-file-name=libobjc.so (libobjc.so).

Any ideas what's wrong?  Thanks in advance.

Tried to install GNUstep startup 0.10.0 on Mac OS X 10.3.8. The installer script insists that some libraries that Fink Commander insists are installed aren't. Any idea what's going on?

Sorry, I made a last minute change to Startup and didn't test it... A work-around is to do:

export CPPFLAGS=-I/sw/include
export LDFLAGS=-L/sw/lib

before running ./InstallGNUstep
