I am having trouble building nodejs on MacOS Snow Leopard. I think it might have something to do with my PATH variable not being set correctly for the developer tools location.

For some reason, the Developer tools (gcc, g++, make etc) are all stored in

/Developer/usr/bin

I added it to my PATH variable as follows:

$ export PATH=$PATH:/Developer/usr/bin

$ echo $PATH
/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/git/bin:/usr/X11/bin:/Developer/usr/bin

When i try to configure it complains about not finding open-ssl, ok, not a big problem. So I try with --without-ssl :

$ ./configure --without-ssl
Checking for program g++ or c++          : /Developer/usr/bin/g++
Checking for program cpp                 : /Developer/usr/bin/cpp
Checking for program ar                  : /usr/bin/ar
Checking for program ranlib              : /Developer/usr/bin/ranlib
Checking for g++                         : ok
Checking for program gcc or cc           : /Developer/usr/bin/gcc
Checking for gcc                         : ok
Checking for library dl                  : yes
Checking for library util                : yes
Checking for library rt                  : not found
--- libeio ---
Checking for library pthread             : yes
Checking for function pthread_create     : not found
/Users/Guy/git_src/node/node/deps/libeio/wscript:13: error: the
configuration failed (see
'/Users/Guy/git_src/node/node/build/config.log')

Anyone know how I can get round this? I am suspicious that it might be something to do with the PATH or another ENV variable, but not sure.

Thanks

Best bet with anything Mac is install homebrew

http://mxcl.github.com/homebrew/

Then you can do

brew install node.js
