Compiling SDL_Mixer for Intel Macs

I searched through the archives for this mailing list and found this
However, it’s not working for me (using the latest stable release,
1.2.7). First off, the script ( refers to OS X 10.2.8
files, while I only have 10.4 files. I did a search and replace so
that the paths in the script point to files that actually exist, but
then when I run the recommended configure ("./configure CC=“sh” && make && rm -rf ppc x86"), I get the following output:

% ./configure CC=“sh” && make && rm -rf ppc x86

checking for sdl-config… /usr/local/bin/sdl-config
checking for SDL - version >= 1.2.10… no
*** Could not run SDL test program, checking why…
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means SDL was incorrectly installed
*** or that you have moved SDL since it was installed. In the latter case, you
*** may want to edit the sdl-config script: /usr/local/bin/sdl-config
configure: error: *** SDL version 1.2.10 not found!
% /usr/local/bin/sdl-config --version

So clearly, something is wrong here; I just haven’t been able to
figure out what, myself. I also note that if I just do ./configure
normally, then I can build and install the libraries, but they don’t
contain any symbols that my computer can recognize:

% ranlib lib/libSDL_mixer.a
ranlib: file: lib/libSDL_mixer.a(native_midi_win32.o) has no symbols

I’m fairly certain that I shouldn’t have any system files with the
letters “win” in them anywhere. :slight_smile: Anyway, if anyone has any advice,
I’d love to hear it. Please keep me in the CC list as I’m not
