I did a port install for gcc version 4.7.1 (MacPorts gcc47 4.7.1_2) I named the executable as g+ and placed it in one my $PATH. I use gcc 4.7.1 when I need c++11 standard. I haven't changed the original g++ so as not messup XCode.

I am using eclipse-cdt and running the make all from the window. It's giving me:

20:12:40 **** Build of configuration Default for project 2804-hw2 ****
make all 
g+ -c -Wall -std=c++11 main.cpp -o main.o
make: g+: No such file or directory
make: *** [main.o] Error 1
20:12:40 Build Finished (took 89ms)

Here is my makefile

CFLAGS=-c -Wall -std=c++11
SOURCES=main.cpp Vector3D.cpp
PATH := ${PATH}:/opt/local/bin/

    echo ${PATH}
    $(CC) $(LDFLAGS) $(OBJECTS) -o $@
    $(CC) $(CFLAGS) $< -o $@

How do I make eclipse detect my g+?

Put something like echo ${PATH} in there and see if it got your path. If not, add a PATH += ... line to your makefile. – David Schwartz Sep 17 '12 at 4:54
I added the path, it's still not able to find it. – snihalani Sep 17 '12 at 14:27

I made a link to g++-mp-4.7 in my /usr/bin. You can't seem to append to the path in Eclipse's make. It didn't work. Making a link works.
