I have been trying to install dvipng1-8 so that I can view latex in  
SAGE:(Software for Algebra and Geometry Experimentation at http:// 
modular.math.washington.edu/sage/) . I am using a MacBookPro with  
MacTeX  and TeXShop installed. The sage-1.3.6 directory is in my home  
directory.  When I try to configure and install  dvipng1-8,  I get  
the following error:

checking for kpse_set_progname in -lkpathsea... no
configure: error: cannot find/use libkpathsea
Error configuring gd.

Looking for kpathesea in the terminal I see:

Thomas-Rikes-Computer:~ trike$ locate libkpathsea

Thomas-Rikes-Computer:~ trike$ file /usr/local/teTeX/lib/libkpathsea.a
/usr/local/teTeX/lib/libkpathsea.a: current ar archive

Is this what I should have there?

Thomas-Rikes-Computer:~ trike$ locate kpathsea
/Library/Documentation/Help/TeX Catalogue Online.help/Contents/ 

snip -----------


I have tried configuring (after reading the INSTALL document in the  
dvipng1-8 directory) using

Thomas-Rikes-Computer:~/sage-1.3.6/spkg/build/dvipng-1.8 trike$ ./ 
configure LDFLAGS='-L/usr/local/teTeX/lib'CPPFLAGS='-I/usr/local/ 

and various other combinations but to no avail. If you see a way to  
set these paths, please let me know. I do not really know what I am  
doing in the terminal. I usually just follow recipes. Any help would  
be appreciated. Thanks.
