Welcome to autocrap. Why have a 40 line Makefile when you can have
40,000 lines of autogenerated garbage that still can't find what it
What you need is something like:
./configure --enable-custom-modes --with-ogg=/opt/local
--with-ogg tells the configure script where to look for the ogg
libraries. In my case, mine are installed by MacPorts.
You need the --enable-custom-modes because you will get mysterious
failures and exits for no readily apparent reason if you don't. Why
isn't --enable-custom-modes the default like it used to be? Anybody who
actually knows can disable custom modes and generate their specific
modes, but beginners are going to be very confused at getting errors for
practically every combination of frame size and sample rate. I know I
You may need to use one or more of those flags with autogen.sh to
generate the configure file originally.
I do all this on OS X, but, be forewarned, I have MacPorts installed,
