Here's the acinclude.m4 file that had used in a previous project. It
has macros for both SDL and OpenGL. I'm fairly sure that the SDL macro
works for Mac but the OpenGL one does not. The project that I took
this from did compile on the Mac using autoconf, but I had to make a
few bad hacks for it to work. I put this in the autoconf.ac file:
case $host_os in
mingw21* | cygwin* | windows* )
# Include files aren't found with MDL_HAVE_OPENGL
# Libs have different names
LIBS=3D"$LIBS -lOpenGl32 -lGlu32"
LIBS=3D"$LIBS -framework OpenGL"
# OSX wants gl.h not GL/gl.h
AC_CHECK_HEADERS([gl.h glu.h glx.h])
That took care of the detection of the GL headers. I don't have OS
specific code for SDL, so I assume that just worked. We also aren't
using GLX and I don't think we will (it was used before for fonts).
Other autoconf stuff that I used before is here:
I don't have a macro for FreeType, but I'm sure there is one available
somewhere. I didn't see one at the GNU Autoconf Macro Archive
Thanks for doing this, it's a big help.
