Thanks for your report! Full macosx support in the latest release, 2.6.10.

Installing with ./configure;make fails on macosx 10.3 (and probably other versions).

gcl-2.6.7/h/powerpc-macosx.defs contains:

LIBS := `echo $(LIBS) | sed -e 's/-lncurses/ /'` /sw/lib/libintl.dylib

This will not work on a standard Mac OSX system, as /sw/lib does not exist. It only exists if fink is installed.

Replacing /sw/lib/libintl.dylib with -lintl works if libintl is installed in some other place, but even that is not sure.

There is also a line
which is incorrect in Mac OS X 10.3 or 10.4, but on my 10.3 system it doesn't seem do to any harm.

Note these errors were also present in gcl 2.6.6.
