[Flac-dev] Compiling in Xcode

Hello everyone,

I'm not sure whether this is the best place to send the question, but since I'm mostly interested in FLAC and there didn't appear to be a better place for it.. here goes.

I pulled the latest source code from the SVN repo along with all the external dependencies including FLAC. I've been able to compile the FLAC.framework file using the 10.5 SDK in Xcode 3.2 with a dozen or so warnings, but have been unable to compile the entire Xiph.org QuickTime component project. It seems the dependencies compile just fine, but then things explode with a fountain with hundreds errors all of the same nature, choking seemingly on struct definitions, for the most part:

src/flac-1.1.0/src/libFLAC/include/protected/file_decoder.h:26:0 src/flac-1.1.0/src/libFLAC/include/protected/file_decoder.h:26: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 'FLAC__FileDecoderState'


/Users/dmitry/Developer/objc/xiph-qt/build-macosx/../OggImport/src/importer_types.h:99:0 /Users/dmitry/Developer/objc/xiph-qt/build-macosx/../OggImport/src/importer_types.h:99: error: syntax error before 'Track'

are some of the repeating examples of errors.

I've tried building PPC, 32 and x64 builds, as well as the universal ones, but they all fail with the same errors. Would anyone be able to point me in the right direction? It seems like I'm just missing a compiler argument or a project build setting.

Thanks in advance!
