Hi, I'm quite an idiot when it comes to anything involving UNIX or the commandline, and I'm having a problem I can't seem to get past. I'm using FreeType in a project of mine. I'd like to build my project and distribute it to other people. I downloaded and built FreeType using this: ./configure CFLAGS="-arch i386 -arch ppc -mmacosx-version-min=10.4" --enable-shared=no --enable-static=yes make sudo make install I then added libfreetype.a to the "Linked Frameworks" section of my Xcode project. My project builds and runs perfectly on my machine. But when I try to run it on another machine that has not had FreeType downloaded and installed, I get the error (on the console): Dyld Error Message: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libfreetype.6.dylib Referenced from: /Users/nialgiacomelli/Downloads/FreescapeGL.app/Contents/MacOS/FreescapeGL Reason: image not found Which, apart from anything else apparently means that "--enable-shared=no --enable-static=yes" does not, as I would expect, build only a static linking version of FreeType, and/or adding libfreetype.a to Xcode causes it to also find and link with libfreetype.6.dylib. I also have a Framework of FreeType that I obtained from the internet. It seems not to be embeddable, i.e. if I link against it and then even if I embed it into my application, then my application does not run on another Mac that does not have FreeType.framework in ~/Library/Frameworks or /Library/Frameworks. I figure this is probably a point of general application, so: what are the general case instructions for building and installing a UNIX-style library, so that I can statically link it into my projects and then distribute them to end-users such that they are able to use them without downloading and installing the support libraries for themselves?
