I am currently trying to build C::B on Mac but..... it fails
As I saw that frankofrank has made a build with wx-3.1.0, I tried with a recently updated git clone of wx-3.1.1
I've made a dynamic build of wxWidgets, and made a copy of wx-config in /usr/local/bin so it callable from any terminal window.
Then I have:
- created a copy of the C::B svn repo
- called bootstrap
- created a "buildtest" sub folder and "cd" into it
- made a call to ../configure --with-platform=macosx
The configure script stopped while checking for zlib :
../configure: line 17846: syntax error near unexpected token `zlib,'
../configure: line 17846: `PKG_CHECK_MODULES(zlib, zlib, HAVE_ZLIB=yes, HAVE_ZLIB=no)'
I've tried to "brew install zlib" but after installing, brew said that osx already have this package:
This formula is keg-only, which means it was not symlinked into /usr/local.
macOS already provides this software and installing another version in
parallel can cause all kinds of trouble.
Generally there are no consequences of this for you. If you build your
own software and it requires this formula, you'll need to add to your
And the configure script always fails.
Any idea ?
I also saw that the wxWidgets build process hasn't found it, and used the built-in version.
