Hmm. Guess it may have been related to other link stages as well.

You shouldn't have to wait :) I think the coreaudio driver is the one
for Mac OS X. Looks like the autoconf stuff might be broken for this
option though (normally I think you would pass --enable-coreaudio to the
configure script). For now you can just edit src/config.h and change:




Then recompile with "make". Re-running the ./configure script will trash
your changes to config.h, so keep that in mind.

How easy are packages in fink to install? I'd like to get an idea of
what it would entail to get Swami running for Mac OS X users. Cheers.
