Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

The system has been using Macports. I configured the system exactly as per the line by line instructions of this guidelines. In the process I got the following error. The only change that I made from it is that instead of using easy_install, I did easy_install-2.6; that is it.

I feel it is a CXX error, which is kind of above my knowledge. Can some one help me in setting up my mac correctly? I am a heavy user of Xcode (iPhone development), and a Roboticist. I need a compiler for executing C files. And also would be willing to work with Python for this and future setups (e.g. wsgi applications). I have a 64-bit Mac Lion running currently.

This is the Config problem i am having while i am trying to compile with my current llvm-gcc This is the config.log(in full) as you already must be knowing i am a little inexperienced with the compiler changes and all...

This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

It was created by llvm configure 3.1svn, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.60.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure --prefix=/opt --enable-optimized

Now i did not find any material of how to go about in installing llvm-chang in my system where do you need to install it and how to go about it. Is there any way of doing this?

This is the guide i am using. i tried making downloading the files to /usr/llvm and they did download but got stuck at the .configure part.... do you want me to specify any other form of messages that need to be done in setting up the mac compiler correctly.

Please see this solution at ROS Answers. –  fideli Nov 8 '11 at 15:27
    
In general, a lot of new C++ segfaults in Lion can be solved by using the clang compiler instead of llvm-g++. –  fideli Nov 8 '11 at 15:29
