Hi everybody,

I finally succeeded ti compile ipe on MacOSX. The main problem was  
(thanks to Yves Brise !) that the old librairies of ipe 6 were still  
in /usr/local/lib and /usr/local/include. After that I had to compile  
manually fontconfig, cairo and pixman (had to add /usr/local/lib/ 
pkgconfig in the PKG_CONFIG_PATH). Then, compilation OK, and  
installation OK. BUT when I try to launch ipe, it crashes with the  
following error message :

macbook:src gwenael$ /usr/local/bin/ipe
[string "require "main""]:1: module 'main' not found:
	no field package.preload['main']
	no file '/opt/ipe-7/share/ipe/7.0.8/lua/main.lua'
	no file './main.so'
	no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/main.so'
	no file '/usr/local/lib/lua/5.1/loadall.so'
stack traceback:
	[C]: in function 'require'
	[string "require "main""]:1: in main chunk

and it's true that I can't find these files. Any explanation ?

Thanks (I know that the goal is near now...)
