I can't get the package to "configure" on the mac. I've tried using macports but i get the same error through macports.

It first gave out an error of not finding gcc... then i added /Developer/usr/bin to the PATH variable.

when i run configure i get the following error

configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
=============================

When i look into config.log i see the following interesting section

...........................

===============================

Now it looks like the libraries i'm interested in are here
/Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.5.sdk/usr/lib

Anyone have any ideas of how i can install cppunit on the mac...?
Also if you have any tips on using it with Xcode..
