To whom it may interest,
I have been experimenting with trying to build Qucs on the Mac under snow leopard.
Needless to say, there are many problems with this.
First and foremost, the consensus seems to be that Qt3 is permanently deprecated on Snow Leopard.
Qt4 installs fine, but comes from nokia with a gui-based installer.
I will confess that I have little experience building unix apps when dependencies are in nonstandard places,
as I usually am discouraged by my lack of understanding how to modify build configuration accordingly.
I'd like to figure it out though, both for Qucs and because this inability of mine frequently bugs me.
So, I was wondering if anybody here might be able to help me understand how to properly configure
the build environment for qucs-qt4, which seems to be the only path to getting Qucs running on recent
versions of the Mac OS.
First of all, I'm a little confused about the SVN releases. Is it necessary, for example, to build qucs-core before
building qucs-qt4? Attempting to build qucs-core gives me the following error:
> configure: error: The qucs-core package requires an installed adms.
What's adms? Do I need to bother with all this?
If I try to build qucs-qt4, I get the following error, despite having successfully installed Qt4 using the nokia-provided
> checking for libxslt headers... checking for Qt headers... configure: error: not found
So, how should I proceed from here?
Thanks to anybody who can help.
