Sorry Matt, I don’t understand gentoo alt/prefix.
I am still not sure if I have SDL installed properly. Information
from the SDL site states that: ‘When installing UNIX style, SDL gets
installed into /usr/local/bin, /usr/local/include and /usr/local/lib’
I have looked in each of these locations on my computer and I have
SDL files installed in each of them.
in /usr/local/bin I have the sdl-config file.
in /usr/local/include i have an SDL directory containing the
SDL.h SDL_byteorder.h SDL_cpuinfo.h SDL_events.h
SDL_keyboard.h SDL_main.h SDL_name.h SDL_quit.h
SDL_syswm.h SDL_types.h begin_code.h
SDL_active.h SDL_cdrom.h SDL_endian.h SDL_getenv.h
SDL_keysym.h SDL_mouse.h SDL_opengl.h SDL_rwops.h
SDL_thread.h SDL_version.h close_code.h
SDL_audio.h SDL_config.h SDL_error.h SDL_joystick.h
SDL_loadso.h SDL_mutex.h SDL_platform.h SDL_stdinc.h
And in /usr/local/lib I have libSDL-188.8.131.52.2.dylib,
libSDL-1.2.0.dylib, libSDL.a, libSDL.dylib, libSDL.main.a, and there
is one SDL file in pkconfig called sdl.pc.
So I assume I have SDL installed. However, when I try to install
MPEG4IP I still get the following error:
My-Computer:~/mpeg4ip-184.108.40.206 mycompname$ ./bootstrap
Found link for libtoolize
SDL does not appear to be installed - install the SDL development
You must have sdl-config in your path to continue
Is there a SDL development package that I can install with Terminal?
I have tried to install from the SDL-1.2.13.tar.gz - GPG signed using
Terminal. I have also downloaded the SDL-1.2.13.dmg file and SDL-
devel-1.2.13-extras.dmg and used XCode to try and set them up. So I
think I have tried everything but still no joy.
Can someone please, tell me what I am missing. I have been trying
for a week now to get MPEG4IP to install.
I am not sure if the following is important or something I should do:
‘Note that as long as you static link the release builds of your
application, it doesn’t really matter which way you installed SDL –
for example, even if you installed it via Fink, if you static link
SDL, your users do not have to install Fink.’
I don’t understand the meaning of ‘static link’.

if suggest you look into gentoo alt/prefix. thats what i have. i
have sdl and the libs installed to ~/gentoo, all compiled from
source. the only thing that doesnt really work well now is
opengl. it works, but gentoo on osx doesnt have an official way of
handling it. if anyone cares to help, let me know.
there are ways around it, i usually modify the ebuild and the
install. you can find me in #gento-alt if you are interested.
btw, installing to ~/gentoo does not require root or admin.

Thanks for your reply.
I have now looked at the FAQs but being new to this way of
the FAQs didn’t really help. However, I search and found commands
to make all directories visible. When I looked in /usr/local/bin the
sdl.config is there along with other things I want to install like
lame, a52dec and mpeg2dec etc,.
Is there a way to tell the bootstrap or configure file in mpwg4ip
to find the sdl files on installation.
