Re: Help with Mac OS X install

I've been able to get it up and running under 10.2:

It was a clean install and merge-by-hand type of install of 10.2, and 
then I installed all the development tools...

Here were the general steps that I followed:

cvs -z3 
update -dP

./configure --with-libxml2=/usr/local --with-zlib=/usr/local 
	(Note that I had already compiled and installed zlib and 
libxml2 by hand in /usr/local...)

make clean
make test
make install
make install-lib
ranlib /usr/local/lib/libswish-e.a

cd Perl
perl Makefile.PL

(comment out ../src/swish.h, link 1027)
	(Note that this was necessary to compile the perl script... 
using Perl 5.8.0...)

make test
make install

(uncomment ../src/swish.h, link 1027)

cd tests/
swish-e -S http -c example7.config
(This will index the site!)

and to test this...

from within <swish>/tests:
	swish -w <term1> <term2> -f swishDocs.index -c example7.config
