I installed the binaries from the brlcad-7.16.2 distribution.
Trying to run mged I get : Segmentation fault.
My PATh and LD_LIBRARY_PATH have been updated to reflect the binaries and libraries respectively.
I am on macosx 10.6.
This is a known issue with the posted Mac OS X binaries. They are incompatible with the newer version of X11 installed by Apple. You'll either have to compile BRL-CAD yourself from a source distribution or wait for a future binary release of BRL-CAD for Mac OS X.
