Re: [Bug-gnubg] make system

A couple years ago I had added OS/X support (10.3) to the make facility so that basically (with the exception of a LIBGMP anomaly) it would build straight from a CVS pull. Until this past week I had not got around to trying this on 10.4.x.

Excluding your idea for something that asks for the type of build (I;m assuming you want soemthing that asks if you want 3dboards etc etc) - have you managed to get any builds of OS/X to work yet?

To start with I have managed to get a 2D Build to function on Tiger (Under 10.3 - 3d didn't work well or at all - would end in a segfault in Opengl). Next step will be try and get 3d to work (I had a Bus error on my first attempt, and will get it into a debugger later this week). Things I have noticed - removing LIBGMP and Freetype, and adding 4 new libraries to the default Common Libs has allowed me to get a 2D build to work (with sound). 

Have you had any success with OSX builds at all (2D? 3D?). WOuld like to know anything you might have come across.

i'm aware that i can go and modify the code any way i want. perhaps my question would be better phrased: would the primary authors accept a change to the current make system?

BTW, can you define "robust?"
i would consider a robust make system to allow checking out CVS head, configuring the type of build i want, and typing make. it's quite possible that this works for the main devs, but it certainly has never worked for me (on OSX). i simply think it can be done better, but don't want to waste my time if people won't be interested in it.
