  building povray on Snow Leopard (Message 1 to 3 of 3)

On Mac OS X 10.6, the configuration script complains with several file-not-found
errors; I was able to work around this by manually editing the configuration
script and forcing the ac_cv_prog_egrep variable to a good value.  Strange!

I was then able to build povray like this:

../configure COMPILED_BY="Phil" CFLAGS="-m32" CXXFLAGS="-m32"
make
sudo make install

Just thought I'd post this in case anyone else runs into this, or if there's a
better way I should be doing this.

Interesting.  It won't compile with 64 bit?  Is it a problem with some of the
external libraries?

Sorry I can't say anything more insightful than that.  I think you're a bit
ahead of the curve on this one, so I'm not sure anyone will be of too much help
on this issue just yet.  At $30 though, I guess there's not much reason to
delay.

Hi

I tried your instructions above in Snow Leopard but still got the following
error. Can you help?

What do you mean by "forcing the ac_cv_prog_egrep variable to a good value"?

[...]

I do have libtiff installed by fink.

Thanks!
