Description

Naively installing on Mac OS X using brew, I got errors that openssl couldn't be found:

dhcp-45-14:gdp mellis$ make
#(cd doc;   make all)   # needs pandoc
(cd ep;     make all)
cc  -Wall -g -O  -I/opt/local/include -I. -I.. -fPIC   -c -o ep_adm.o ep_adm.c
cc  -Wall -g -O  -I/opt/local/include -I. -I.. -fPIC   -c -o ep_app.o ep_app.c

          ^
1 error generated.
make[1]: *** [ep_crypto.o] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

I'm assuming this is because brew installs openssl to /usr/local but the Makefiles assume it's in /opt/local. It might be good to document the CRYPTOROOT in README-compiling.md, since this seems likely to affect many OS X brew users. Alternatively, maybe CRYPTOROOT (and LOCALROOT) can be set from the brew configuration?

  • Status changed from New to Feedback

Changed Makefiles to always search /usr/local and /opt/local, completely eliminating CRYPTOROOT. Fixed in commit:475517e. David, please confirm that this works for you.

No feedback for two weeks, so I'm assuming this has been adequately addressed. Marking as closed.
