#1836 new defect

Chicken doesn't build out of the box on recent macosx

Keywords: macosx Cc:
Estimated difficulty: trivial


A friend wanted to build Chicken 5.3.0 on his "Mac OS 14" mac, and complained that it looked in the wrong place for tools.

He had to override stuff to make it build:

make PLATFORM=macosx PREFIX=...redacted... C_COMPILER=/usr/bin/gcc  \
   LIBRARIAN=/usr/bin/ar POSTINSTALL_PROGRAM=/usr/bin/install_name_tool \

He has the XCode cli tools installed but not the UI. The makefile was trying to find stuff under /Developer/... but it ain't there no more.
