i tried to compile wp2latex too (./configure and make all in the main 
directory; unsucessfully, despite best intentions :)), and ran into the 
following problems:

(1) wp2latex includes libintl.h
     some fink packages installed that, so i had it in /sw/include.
     i could make wp2latex find it by editing the following line in 
sources.cc/makefile so that it reads:

     FLAGS=-g -O2 -fno-rtti -fno-exceptions  -I./atoms/include/ 
-I./cp_lib/ -I/sw/include/ -DFINAL  -Wno-long-double #-Wall #-static

(2) i ran into trouble when wp2latex tried to include values.h, which 
is not available on a mac. apple says to use limits.h instead 
(http://developer.apple.com/technotes/tn2002/tn2071.html), but neither 
including that (by changing the code in sources.cc/images/ras_img.cc), 
nor defining MAXLONG and M_PI myself helped me successfully compile it. 
i get a little further, but end up with the error message below.

somebody with programming experience is needed i suspect. i wrote to 
the maintainer, but since it appears to be a one person project, i 
don't know how much time/enegery/resources he would have to spare. 
maybe somebody else has an idea? c++ programmers out there?

tia,
jan

definitions i added where values.h was supposed to be included (in 
sources.cc/images/ras_img.cc):

#if defined(_MSC_VER) || defined(__CYGWIN32__)
  #define MAXLONG     0x7fffffff
  #define M_PI        3.14159265358979323846
#else
   // this used to only say #include <values.h>

   #include <limits.h>

   #ifndef MAXCHAR
   #define MAXCHAR   ((char)0x7f)
   #endif
   #ifndef MAXSHORT
   #define MAXSHORT  ((short)0x7fff)
   #endif
   #ifndef MAXINT
   #define MAXINT    ((int)0x7fffffff)
   #endif
   #ifndef MAXLONG
   #define MAXLONG   ((long)0x7fffffff)
   #endif

   #ifndef MINCHAR
   #define MINCHAR   ((char)0x80)
   #endif
   #ifndef MINSHORT
   #define MINSHORT  ((short)0x8000)
   #endif
   #ifndef MININT
   #define MININT    ((int)0x80000000)
   #endif
   #ifndef MINLONG
   #define MINLONG   ((long)0x80000000)
   #endif

    #define M_PI        3.14159265358979323846
#endif
