Ah, okay - from scratch. I could only tell that you were not using
DarwinPorts :). If Christian (or I) simply add the extra link parameters
to a default Mac build it should be fine for all Mac environments.

I use to use Fink many moons ago (It has the advantage of being
relocatable) but they were slow in getting up to speed with 10.5 (QWith
numerous problems), and updates were not speedy enough for my liking.

DarwinPorts seems to be better maintained (Achim and I use it), but has
the downside of not being relocatable unless you want to hack the
binaries after a build.
