lewinb - 2004-03-23

I'm posting this as a new thread, because it's a new problem, but it's still partially related to my other topic.  I appreciate any kind soul who will take the time to help with this!!

after having trouble with "no decode delegate" messages, I ran "convert -list format", and found that imagemagick was not able to read or write jpegs, even though I had installed jpeglib (or at least attempted to and failed) previously. Apparently, there was an error that I was unaware of when I installed it the first time, that prevented it from installing.
I downloaded the jpegv6 source again, and when I attempt to install it, it says that there are two problems.
1) ltconfig can't guess which kind of host it's on, and
2) it couldn't get libtool to work properly.
I tried changing the command to this:
[Bruce-Lewins-Computer:~/Desktop/jpeg-6b] lewinb% ./configure --enable-shared --host=UNIX
But it didn't make a difference:

checking host system type... Invalid configuration `unix': machine `unix' not recognized
Now, I *know* libtool is there, and is working. First, it said it wasn't even available, so I changed how the script called the command from "./libtool" to just "libtool". (For some reason, this is how things in the bin are loaded on mac OS... maybe it's the same on others?). Once I did that, it was able to run it.
When I tried Make, it output this (note the "unknown option character"):
[Bruce-Lewins-Computer:~/Desktop/jpeg-6b] lewinb% make
libtool --mode=compile gcc -O2  -I. -c ./jcapimin.c
libtool: unknown option character `-' in: --mode=compile

make: *** [jcapimin.lo] Error 1
[Bruce-Lewins-Computer:~/Desktop/jpeg-6b] lewinb% 
Why is this error coming up, and (more importantly), how can I fix it? I am on Mac OS X 10.2.8, and nearly any plain unix install will work, so I'm not sure what is so different with this.
Here is how my config flags were set on ImageMagick, if it helps:
./configure --enable-lzw --with-modules --without-bzlib --enable-shared --without-x
And here is the output from the attempted configure of jpeglib:
