[sword-devel] Mac OS X make errors

Hmmm, interesting...  Am looking at my own system (OS X 10.1.3 build 
5Q45) and I have no Makefile.cfg issues...  altho I have other issues...
comments first:  my system is completely up to date (says Nic as he just 
double checks with apple! -- yes, I think so!) and so perhaps the whole 
config system with sword requires a newer version of configure?  ran 
./usrinst.sh and then make, as Chris did, (on a cvs grab of sword, which 
tells me it's 1.5.3), and the problems I ran into were to do with:

/bin/sh ../libtool --mode=compile c++  -DUNIX  -I. -I. -I.. 
-I../include    -g -O0 -Werror -c -o swmgr.lo `test -f 
../src/mgr/swmgr.cpp || echo './'`../src/mgr/swmgr.cpp
c++ -DUNIX -I. -I. -I.. -I../include -g -O0 -Werror -c 
../src/mgr/swmgr.cpp -Wp,-MD,.deps/swmgr.TPlo
In file included from /usr/include/dirent.h:64,
                  from ../src/mgr/swmgr.cpp:26:
/usr/include/sys/dirent.h:73: syntax error before `;'
/usr/include/sys/dirent.h:74: syntax error before `;'
/usr/include/sys/dirent.h:75: syntax error before `;'
/usr/include/sys/dirent.h:76: syntax error before `;'
make[2]: *** [swmgr.lo] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

have had a li'l look into it and OS X wants to have dirent.h included 
later on in swmgr.cpp (I moved it to just above all the sword .h files, 
and it works fine, altho localemgr.cpp complains of the same, fixable 
via the same method)...  it ends up producing the 12mb libsword.a file 
in lib/.libs, which is all cool and fine and dandy, and then dies doing 
the testlib, with:

Making all in .
/bin/sh ./libtool --mode=link c++  -g -O0 -Werror   -o testlib  
testlib.o -Llib -lsword -lstdc++ -lz
libtool: link: cannot find the library `'
make[2]: *** [testlib] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

but I don't have time to go into that atm, but as long as my beloved OS 
X can produce our beloved sword lib, I'm happy...  :)  I guess I should 
see if it works, but gotta go!  :)

on another note, I'm currently unable to look into doing a Mac OS 
frontend as I've somehow managed to get this really cool job where the 
evangelistic opportunities are huge, so am lacking a lot of time...  
perhaps in a few months when things calm down I'll either take another 
look at it, or get stuck into the java port (my old job in the computer 
industry was along those lines) and hopefully have that as the Mac 
version...  :)

keep up the awesome work guys, and God Bless...  oh, and does anyone 
know of a concordance that exists for the Palm OS?  I find that the 
search speed on Palm bible readers aren't all that great, and would 
rather just a dumb search instead (an index!)...  size isn't an issue, 
as I have quite a bit of space available atm for it...  of course, 
opensource is what I'm looking for, altho I'm not restricting myself to 
it...  thanks!  :)

	nic...  :)
