> Murray, since you are using MacPorts ("-I/opt/local/include  -I/opt/local/include/libxml2"), if you still don't have libkpathsea installed in MacPorts, then you'd just need to install some TeX utility that MacTeX doesnot have, dblatex I think, and MacPorts would install TeX Live partially/basically and libkpathsea – into /opt/local/include/kpathsea and into /opt/local/lib. That way you would get all necessary files (plus a lot more). And presumingly you would be able to request an universal build or apure 64-bit build – or a 32-bit build if your hardware is from the earliest intel Macs. The paths given can be passed to configure via (necessary anyway for libXSLT and libXML2)

I am _not_ using MacPorts for TeXLive now.

[Sorry about that: in my Thunderbird e-mail client, it's just not easy 
to reply to a single message within a digest (as you can see also by the 
fact that the quoted lines fail to wrap -- at least when I am composing 
this in Thunderbird).]
