[Mono-devel-list] Mono on MAC OS X.

Disable ICU and see if you still have that issue or go back to ICU 2.6.1,
since on Linux most packages use that version.  But mono from CVS is broken
right now, you can use mint.

Hi Paolo,

I'm trying to compile Mono from it's CVS. I do the following steps :

ProductName:    Mac OS X
ProductVersion: 10.3.3

Dependency packages:

pkg-config v:0.15.0
glib v:2.2.3
gettext (GNU gettext) v:0.10.40
icu v:2.8
autoconf v:1.8

Obtained from:

GC configure:
./configure --enable-threads=pthreads --prefix=/__path_to_gc

environment setings:

export CFLAGS=-I/__path_to_gc
export LDFLAGS=-L/__path_to_gc

On a clean Mono CVS checkout this is how I configure mono:

./autogen.sh --prefix=/Users/ztashev/supp/mono_install --with-gc=boehm

 GC:          boehm
        ICU:         yes. Version: 2.8
        NPTL:        yes
        SIGALTSTACK: no
        Engine:      Building and using the JIT
        2.0 Alpha:   no
        JNI support: no

Using monocharge from web.

The compilation and instalation go without errors.

While compiling the mcs classes :

mcs   -d:NET_1_1 -d:ONLY_1_1 -g /target:exe /out:mcs.exe AssemblyInfo.cs
anonymous.cs assign.cs attribute.cs driver.cs cs-tokenizer.cs cfold.cs
class.cs codegen.cs const.cs constant.cs convert.cs decl.cs delegate.cs
enum.cs ecore.cs expression.cs flowanalysis.cs genericparser.cs iterators.cs
literal.cs location.cs modifiers.cs namespace.cs parameter.cs pending.cs
report.cs rootcontext.cs statement.cs support.cs typemanager.cs
symbolwriter.cs tree.cs CryptoConvert.cs cs-parser.cs
syntax error, got token `CLOSE_PARENS', expecting OPEN_BRACE OPEN_PARENS DOT

Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set
to an instance of an object
make[2]: *** [mcs.exe] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

If I disable the GC (by : export GC_DONT_GC=1) it continues somewhat further
and stops again.

Am I doing something wrong in compiling Mono on MacOSX (as outlined above) ?

And are the problems I'm getting someting to be expected ?

Will there be "official" Mono MacOSX binaries to compare with ?
