It looks as if you are trying to compile it yourself. Fink should
contain prebuilt packages of LilyPond. I'm not a Mac user myself,
and don't know anything about Fink, but 'ar' should belong to
the same category of packages as the compilers, linkers, debuggers
and so on.

Hi, I'm a non-Unix-user trying to instal Lilypond under MacOS X.

Got along pretty well - got fink going, found how to change the setting about trees, told it to install lilypond-unstable and it did lots of stuff. But it gave up in the end because it can't find 'ar'.

checking for ar... missing_ar
configure: error: No ar utility found.

My Unix book says 'ar' is a standard utility. I'm not sure what to do about getting it, preferably in a form that ignoramuses like me can use.

Can you help at all?
