building with macports

    how does one build waffles with the libraries installed thru macports?

    Building GClasses.a...

    rm -f ../../lib/GClasses.a

    umask 0;g++ -D_THREAD_SAFE -DDARWIN -I/sw/include -no-cpp-precomp -O3 -c
    GImage.cpp -o ../../obj/GClasses/opt/GImage.o

    GImage.cpp:33:18: error: png.h: No such file or directory

    That error indicates that libpng is not installed (or at least the default
    include path does not know where to find png.h, and installing libpng will
    typically put a copy of png.h somewhere in the default include path).
    Unfortunately, I don't know how to install things in macports. Any Mac users
    out there want to chime in?

    Kinda late response here, but maybe someone will find this helpful:

    sudo port install libpng

    To get it to build, I edited every Makefile and changed /sw/ to /opt/local/:

    find . -type f -exec fgrep -l '/sw/' {} \; | xargs edit

    Then build and install - it all ends up in /usr/local/bin,

    /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib

    make opt

    make install

    I did not build the demo apps since MacPorts, bless its little heart, wanted
    to install every know package under the sun when I tried installing libsdl
