I just pushed a patch that should fix this one.  Please let me know if it works for you.

When trying to compile the latest mdk code in your repository with the gtk+ gui feature, it fails on OS X 10.9.4 with this error:

ld: unknown option: --export-dynamic

This problem was known to the MacPorts project way back in 2006 when mdk 1.2.1 was initially added to MacPorts, because a patch was included at that time which removes that flag:


But this was apparently never reported to you since the problem remains in the latest code.

My understanding is this option is not used on OS X. It would be great if your build system could omit this flag on OS X. Thanks.
