Dustin Tang has suggested a way to get PLplot shared libraries to work with
Darwin MacOS X, and I have just put that suggestion into CVS (the
cf/sysloc.in file had the appropriate Darwin* stanza added).
I haven't tried this myself because I have no access to MacOS X, but I would
appreciate those that do have such access to give it a try and let me know
if there are any problems building shared libraries with Darwin/MacOS X.
To do this you must do an anonymous cvs checkout of the
latest CVS version of the PLplot tree. Then
./configure .... #where "...." stands for your configure options
Check the output of configure to make sure that shared libraries are being
used before you build everything with the "make" command.
N.B. the make configure line requires that you have autoconf installed.
It also appears from private correspondence with Dustin that he may soon
learn how to get the python module built on MacOS X. As soon as we have
more news there, one of us we will let you know.
