This mean it cannot find libpari-2.2.dylib, but there are none in
/usr/local/lib so it fails.

I guess it looked for the .dylib; didn't find it; tried to settle for the .a; and that didn't work. Weird.

I have made a wrong assumption on how configure work, so the symlinks are
wrong.  Please add a symlink:

ln -s libpari-2.2.2.dylib /usr/local/lib/libpari-2.2.dylib

This should fix the problem, if we are lucky.


Now I would really happy if someone (Ilya?) would split Configure
in small parts and remove the kludges.

I do not know how to add the soversion *before* the dylib suffix with

Also if you need the static library, please run ranlib on it.

I agree with Karim; ranlib should be run by the Makefile *after* the (.a) library is installed; and if 'ranlib' is avaliable, that's a good indication that its use is required.

Everything seems to work, after installation, so I'm a happy camper.

Thanks for your help.
