I don't want to use either of Fink or MacPorts, because I use Homebrew. I need to use dkpg, but it isn't included in Homebrew, and it fails when trying to compile it from source with:

$ make
make  all-recursive
Making all in lib
Making all in compat
  CC     empty.o
cc1: error: unrecognized command line option "-Wvla"
make[3]: *** [empty.o] Error 1
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive

] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

I'm using:
Mac OS X 10.7
Xcode 4.1

And I'm trying to install dpkg

What version of Mac OS X? What version of Xcode Tools? – Spiff Aug 17 '11 at 0:26
This may sound biased, but if you're trying to compile something yourself that a project like MacPorts already has working, it may be instructive to check out the dpkg Portfile for tips on a successful compilation. – fideli Aug 17 '11 at 0:34
What version of dpkg, for that matter? – Spiff Aug 17 '11 at 3:26
