I want to install Sally on MacOSX when I run ./configure, I get stuck at:

No package 'libconfig' found

even after installing libconfig through macports.

Can anyone shred some light on this?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Assuming that you have MacPorts configured to install into '/opt/local' (see prefix in macports/macports.conf)...

You'll want to check that your ${CPPFLAGS} contains -I/opt/local/include and your ${LDFLAGS} -L/opt/local/lib

How can I get the installation directory of libconfig that was installed via MacPorts? – mabounassif Jun 4 '11 at 1:01
The configuration is running but when I want to make the program I get the following error: input_lines.c:35: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or 'attribute' before 'cfg' Could it be an architecture problem? – mabounassif Jun 4 '11 at 1:46
@mabounassif: You'll have to read the rest of the logfile to understand what's missing. – Johnsyweb Jun 4 '11 at 2:07

It was a problem with how i installed libconfig.

Should have installed using the following command:

sudo port install libconfig-hr
