Prerequisites for Mac OS X/Homebrew

This page shows how to use brew to install the standard dependencies of apertium (and related packages) on Mac OS X.


Most of our OS X developers use port, not brew, but it should be perfectly possible to install prerequisites using brew. As with Macports, you need the full XCode with command-line-tools, and of course homebrew itself.

This script for testing on https://travis-ci.org uses brew install gperftools help2man pcre icu4c perl518 gawk, but travis comes with some stuff preinstalled, so you may also need to brew install autoconf automake pkg-config subversion cmake wget apple-gcc42.


Note also the CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=/usr/local/opt/icu4c:"${CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH}" ./cmake.sh – if "brew" tells you that something was kegged and you need to set LDADD/CPPFLAGS, then you can put it in CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH when running ./cmake.sh.


That said, you should probably stick with Macports if you can.
