Various items and how to information, recorded partly so I can refer back to them if necessary. Some items may help others.
The following patch to ./libguile/gc_os_dep.c
379c379 < # ifndef mach_type_known --- > # ifdef mach_type_known
./configure --disable-shared --prefix=/Users/Shared # last flag optional, make check fails, but guile installs and runs.
doc/README.CVS carefully. Already have current release version installed in
/Users/Shared/bin, and have no intentions of replacing with unstable binaries. Build cvs version in place using currently installed version instead of following step 2 in README.CVS documentation.
autocvs fails due to Apple moving/renaming common tools. Fix with symbolic link:
rds% sudo ln -s /usr/bin/glibtoolize /usr/bin/libtoolize
make instead of
BOOTSTRAP_PATH is to current installed release.
rds% make BOOTSTRAP_PATH=/Users/Shared/bin
Build process errors near end, rerun with
-k flag to make. Ran make without flag to insure that everything builds correctly.
rds% ./csi ; This is the CHICKEN interpreter. ; Version 1, Build 19 - macosx-gnu-ppc ; (c)2000-2003 Felix L. Winkelmann >>>
Run commands in step 8, including 2-stage bootstrap instructions.
The Chicken distribution has some great examples, including an X Window based one that works under Apple's X11 and XDarwin. The following will get those working. Made
ln -s /usr/X11R6/include/X11/ /usr/include/X11 and
ln -s /usr/X11R6 /usr/X11 to accommodate chicken examples that call X11. The Mandlebrot test runs well.
Patch to 0.1082 makefile to reflect build directory, as setting the environment variable every time between logins was becoming cumbersome. The examples directory remains in the build directory, it is not installed during
make install. This isn't needed for version 1.0, which uses relative paths.
/Users/Shared/src/chicken-0.1082/examples/Makefile 9c9,10 < SRCDIR = $(CHICKEN_HOME)/src --- > #SRCDIR = $(CHICKEN_HOME)/src > SRCDIR = /Users/rds/code/chicken-0.1082
UMB Scheme does not use configure, instead it has a static Makefile. The prefix relocation method described in Utilizing an Alternative to
/usr/local on OSX will not work. To relocate and install UMB Scheme in a directory other than
/usr/local, some hand editing is necessary.
scheme-3.2 changed standard prelude paths in steering.c, prelude.scheme, and SLIB-for-umb-scheme.init use the following patches to regain original.[THE FOLLOWING STILL NEEDS TO BE CLEANED UP]
