Re: Mac OS X binary

I finally compiled pspp and psppire successfully on Mac OS X 10.6. Here were my steps in case someone else wants to try it.

I installed the fink port of pspp

$ fink install pspp

But this will not include the GUI, so go ahead and remove it.

$ fink remove pspp

I do not know if this step is useful, but I figured I would let Fink take care of the dependencies (that's what a package manager is for right?).

Obtain and expand the tarball and run configure with these flags:

$ ./configure LDFLAGS="-L/sw/lib" CFLAGS="-I/sw/include -m32 "

The reason I use -m32 is because I found a bunch of warnings in config.log:

ld: warning: in /sw/lib/libgsl.dylib, file was built for i386 which is not the architecture being linked (x86_64)

Once I specify that I want the same architecture that Fink uses, the configure script finishes without any errors. Finish off with

$ make install

and thats it! I am slightly worried that the check's are not all successful,

$ make check

says that 2 of 160 tests failed. Namely,

FAIL: tests/command/
FAIL: tests/expressions/

But this is better than nothing, I guess I could always populate a pspp file with the GUI, and maybe use Fink's pspp binary on it (assuming it's more reliable than my build).

I know that the MacPorts binary includes the GUI, although I
haven't used the MacPorts binary myself.
