giflib-4.1.6 Configure error - build failure

Reported by: alex@… Owned by: ryandesign (Ryan Schmidt)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: giflib Cc:


giflib has a configure error on my powerbook g4 ppc. I'll attach the config.log, but here's the relevant error from config.log:

gcc version 4.0.1 (Apple Computer, Inc. build 5367)
configure:2992: $? = 0
configure:2999: /usr/bin/gcc-4.0 -V >&5
gcc-4.0: argument to `-V' is missing
configure:3002: $? = 1

here's the build output from sudo install giflib

Owner: changed from macports-tickets@… to ryandesign@…

Assigning to maintainer.

What version of Xcode do you have installed? For 10.5, make sure it's either 3.0 (available on the 10.5 DVD), or 3.1 (available for download).

once I upgraded Xcode to v2.4.1 from the leopard dvd ( I had an old version before)- it worked like a charm. Thanks for the help & sorry for the trouble.

I upgraded from Xcode 2.4.1 to Xcode 3.0 and that fixed everything. I wasn't clear before.
