How to make a plugins-enabled bzfs binary on Mac

Post by Mari Iijima » Sat Nov 22, 2008 11:35 pm

I encountered the problem that I couldn't load any plugins
with official mac bzfs binary package (ver.2.0.10).
So I needed to make binary myself and finally I got it as following.

0. Install Xcode Tools from Leopard DVD
1. Download source code zip file (bzflag-2.0.12) to Desktop
2. Configure

Code: Select all

  cd Desktop/bzflag-2.0.12
  ./configure --enable-optimized --enable-shared
3. Make (date)

Code: Select all

  cd Desktop/bzflag-2.0.12/src/date
4. Edit Desktop/bzflag-2.0.12/src/bzfs/Makefile :{

Code: Select all

  #pkglibdir = $(libdir)/bzflag
  pkglibdir = /Applications/
5. Make (bzfs)

Code: Select all

  cd Desktop/bzflag-2.0.12/src/bzfs
6. Replace's bzfs binary with the output bzfs file :{

Anyone have comment on this!?

On my Mac I always need to compile with the options --enable-shared and --enable-plugins, otherwise it doesn't work at all for me.

As for the Makefile editing, I'm not completely sure, but I'm going to bet that the variable pkglibdir has nothing to do with plugins. make install places plugins in $prefix/lib.
