You'll need some prerequisites:

  • libpaper (to be able to switch to ISO paper formats), http:// 
  • FreeType2 – FreeType2-2.2.1 is getting ripe, but you can use  
what's inside the XeTeX sources
  • fontconfig (in Apple's X11User.pkg, or http://www.fontconfig.org,  
but then you'll need also libexpat because of XML support, in Apple's  
X11User.pkg or http://expat.sourceforge.net)
  • standard libraries like png, kpathsea (zlib is in Mac OS X)
  • I think Apple's X11SDK.pkg is also needed in order to find the C  
header files

Configure accepts pointers to the necessary libraries and to the C  
header files. I think this is a bit too complicated, particularly  
when it's standard software like FreeType2 or fontconfig, so I use  
environment variables like LDFLAGS or CPPFLAGS to point to the  
directories where the library files can be found or to include a  
particular search path for the C preprocessor (i.e. cpp or gcc -E).

Mit friedvollen Grüßen

  66+ 73+ 76+ 76+ 71+ 65+ 84+ 69+ 83 = 663

  and add 3 because he's Bill Gates the third.
