Hi list,

there is a problem with building GIMP on OS X since version 2.3.6 (2.3.5 still worked well). At the first look it seemed to be related to libtool, so I had a conversation with them. Peter gave me then some information that might help some enlighted gimp dev to wipe the problem out:

The problem is here:

I think they want to check for gnu binutils to use -rpath $ORIGIN/../lib, but I'm not sure. Right now they try to do this for OS != windows. Ick!

To make an app relocatable on Mac OS X, you have to do more work than this.
You need to link your libraries with an install_name (soname) of
@executable_path/../lib/libfoo.dylib, by far the easiest thing to do to make apps relocatable is to build as normal with -Wl,- headerpad_max_install_names ~ in LDFLAGS, then you can fix things to have the @executable_path/ bit after
build using install_name_tool(1).

Not libtool's fault, sorry, now you've got to go back to the gimp developers.


btw. there is a complete build log at http://wernicke-online.net/temp/ gimp2.3.7_build.log

hope that helps!

I'd really like to see GIMP running on OS X in the dev version.
