Hi

Does anyone have an install script or tips to build Blitz++
on Mac OS X?

configure went fine, as did make check-testsuite but make
failed here:
=============================
texi2dvi `test -f 'blitz.texi' || echo './'`blitz.texi

creating `Top' node.

make check-benchmarks failed here:

I'm not a UNIX/binutils Guru so if anyone has any ideas
then please let me know.

    We have recently updated the autoconf/automake files for
    Blitz to allow
    autoconf to manage most of the compiler configuration
    issues. After
    these updates, I was able to configure and build blitz on a
    Mac OS X
    system using the gcc compiler. Please access the most
    recent copy of
    the blitz source files via anonymous CVS and try again.
    BTW, the error
    that you saw while trying to install the blitz docs is
    occurring because you
    do not have TeX installed on your machine. This is not
    critical if you don't care about installing documentation.
