Hello,

I'm trying to migrate my MacOS X 10.3.8 from Fink to Gentoo/Portage, but unfortunately this seems to be quite a task!

Packages which are can be compiled and installed perfectly fine under Fink fail with configuration or compilation errors under Gentoo/Portage, even if these packages are explicitly marked as being available for MacOS X.

Most troubles are coming from libtool; there's the original one provided by BSD/MacOS X, which works very similar to ranlib, and accepts a completely different set of command line options than the GNU libtool does (typical error messages: unknown option o in -soname).

And then there's GNU libtool, which results in error messages as well, eg. like unknown option -arch_only (which by the way works perfectly fine with MacOS X's libtool).

Renaming the Mac libtool and using GNU libtool only doesn't work out, neither does the other way round.

With Fink it's no issue at all.

Any ideas?

- Martin

Moved from Portage & Programming. I think you'll get more help here.
