Installing freeGLUT in Lion

Hello there!

I am trying to install freeGLUT in Lion. I am following the next steps:
CPPFLAGS="-I/usr/X11R6/include" ./configure --prefix="${PWD}/…/"
make install

first two steps fine, but when i make the make or the make install i got the next error:
ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

not sure if i am doing something wrong or this a software issue. Any ideas?

computer spec:
OSX Lion 10.7.3
NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M 512 MB


I am actually facing the exact same problem and there seems to be no reply to this question. I am wondering if anyone has solved this problem and generously share how?


This question would be better directed to the freeglut team it seems.

Can you investigate a bit about your arch settings ?

  1. do you have a 64bits OS or not ?

  2. do a “file” on your compiled .o .so .a and post results. ie :
    file lib/
    lib/ ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), stripped
    or :
    ELF 64-bit LSB shared object, AMD x86-64, version 1 (SYSV), not stripped

  3. do the same on the X libs installed on your system.

  4. check the output of the autogen and configure steps, to check for any misdetection of your actual architecture
