[Ipe-discuss] OS X compile notes, problems

Two things I've observed trying to compile ipe-6.0pre23 on my new 
PowerBook with fink:

1. unsigned long integers on this system are not 'ulong', but are 
'u_long'.  Changed two instances on line 376 of ipeutils.cpp.  This 
solved that problem.

2. make fails after

c++-3.3 -prebind -dynamiclib -single_module 
-headerpad_max_install_names -install_name /sw/lib/libipecanvas.1.dylib 
-compatibility_version      1.0 -current_version    1.0.0 -o 
libipecanvas.1.0.0.dylib ../../build/obj/ipecanvas/ipecanvas.o 
../../build/obj/ipecanvas/moc_ipedlgtext.o  -L/sw/lib -L/sw/lib 
-L/usr/X11R6/lib -lfreetype -lqt-mt -lXext -lX11 -lm

ld: warning prebinding disabled because of undefined symbols
ld: Undefined symbols:
 >>> snipped several lines
IpeBuffer::operator=(IpeBuffer const&)
/usr/bin/libtool: internal link edit command failed
make[1]: *** [../../build/lib/libipecanvas.1.0.0.dylib] Error 1
make: *** [sub-ipecanvas] Error 2

I poked around for a bit, but I don't know what the problem is or how 
to fix it.  Anyone got a suggestion?  Be glad to supply further info if 

I did try installing the fink package, but it was ipe6-pre10 and 
wouldn't play nice with pdflatex; I'm hoping that pre23 does and I can 
get it installed.

p.s. No problems compiling on my Athlon64 running Gentoo.

Why is it called tourist season if we can't shoot at them?
