there are two fltk-gl related bugs in Pixie:
If the --with-fltk-config option is given a directory, the fltk configure
tests fail but no warning is shown at the end, show and gui are
built happily, but when show is then run, the error
"OpenGL wrapper not found" appears.
The tests for fltk-gl always use the static fltk link flags due to
a bug in the configure script. See line 140 in
STATIC_FLTK is given the value "true" or "false", but the test in
line 143 checks for "no"!
This is a problem on my Debian4.0 system, where the
--ldstaticflags option of fltk-config mysteriously includes
a -lXft -lXinerama which makes the linking of the test
program _fail_ (config.log says ld failed to find -lXft)
and Pixie configure then does not recognize fltk at all.

I think I fixed the second problem and I am trying to replicate the first one. Unfortunately, I'm having trouble on my MAC with this. I recently moved and have no access to my Windoze box yet either. So this will take some time. Sorry about the delay.
Incidentally, what do you (as community) think about switching FLTK with QT for OpenGL/other UI? FLTK requires X on OSX. Ot would make everything native.
no need to hurry. :)
To replicate the first case, just try
I know that this input is wrong, but the error is not
catched/announced properly and the build may then
be broken in a very hard to diagnose way. On my
system I got a "show" and "gui" but they did not
work. All questions a Pixie build knowledgeable
person might have asked would not lead to the
detection of the root of the problem. Like: did you
get configure errors, did show build, does it load
As for your second question: go with whatever
does not require too much additional dependencies
as they are potential points of failure and you
do not have full control...
As for MacOSX, please refrain from anything
based on fink (just my personal view and my
way of keeping the Ayam build clean from
dependencies a potential user would probably
not be able to/want to install).
