I have successfully built ECL under MacOSX 10.3.9 with
./configure --with-tcp --prefix="/Users/luis/Software"
but 'make install' fails with this error:

cd doc; make prefix=/Users/luis/Software install
/bin/sh /Users/luis/Desktop/ecl-0.9f/src/gc/mkinstalldirs /Users/luis/Software/info

    /sw/sbin/install-info --info-dir=/Users/luis/Software/info $k; \
  fi; \

It seems to have installed the rest of ECL so that's not too bad.

pomajxego:~ luis$ ecl
dyld: ecl can't open library: /lib/ecl/libecl.dylib  (No such file or directory, errno = 2)
Trace/BPT trap

It kind of works after I create a symlink there.

However, it doesn't seem to be able to lead any libraries:

pomajxego:~/test luis$ ls /Users/luis/Software/lib/ecl/
BUILD-STAMP  cmp.fas      h            libecl.dylib sysfun.lsp
asdf.fas     dpp          help.doc     sockets.fas

Should (require :asdf) look for ASDF.fas instead of asdf.fas, btw?

I hope this helps,
