My build under Mac OS X 10.3.9 had no such problem (I do have IM 6.2.6 installed). My 10.4.4 build, however, had a problem with the Mac OS X specific Objective C code:

Processing extra/MacOSX/
mkdir -p bin
/usr/local/gcc-3.4/bin/gcc -ObjC -o bin/ofsndplay -framework Cocoa
gcc: Cocoa: No such file or directory
cc1plus: error: invalid option argument `-ObjC'
cc1plus: error: unrecognized command line option "-framework"
make[2]: *** [bin/ofsndplay] Error 1
make[2]: Target `all' not remade because of errors.
make[1]: *** [MacOSX/] Error 2

I don't know how to force mkoctfile to pick up Objective C from the non-standard gcc 3.4.5 path.

I tried building octave-forge-2006.01.28 on my Mac with OS X 10.3.9 and
Xcode 1.5 tools, with the same octave-2.1.72 and mkoctfile that successfully
built and installed octave-forge-2005.06.13.

The build fails because my libltdl.3.dylib is located in /usr/local/lib,
while the octave-forge make file is looking for
/ImageMagick-6.1.9/lib/libltdl.3.dylib which does not exist on my machine.

I could just permanently create /ImageMagick-6.1.9/lib/libltdl.3.dylib or a
symlink, but it would be better if I could get octave-forge trained to
always look in /usr/local/lib for this library. Any ideas? Is this a problem
with the octave-forge configure routine or with my library arrangement?


How could mkoctfile find the obsolete version of IM? Did you have it sitting there when you built octave? You might want to rebuild octave itself.
