Build Environment

  • Download and install the XCode Tools version for the operating system on the machine that you will use for the building job.
  • Install either Fink or MacPorts. Select the one you prefer most.
    • Install Fink for your environment and configure Fink to use the unstable repositories. See the Fink FAQ for information about the unstable packages and Fink Downloads for a package installer or source code for Fink (depending on your OS).
    • If you don't have it already, install MacPorts, which provides the port command, from MacPorts, giving you compilable package access to thousands of pieces of open source software. If you already have macports (formerly darwinports) installed, update it:
      $ sudo port selfupdate
      Make sure you have synced the latest port files:
      $ sudo port -d sync

Building and installing Enblend/Enfuse

Both Fink and MacPorts provide access to an earlier build of Enblend3 - however, these are really outdated versions. The following instructions are geared towards those who want to install the latest version of Enblend and Enfuse. The instructions are split into two sections: 1) satisfying prerequisites, which must only be done once; and 2) building the latest Enblend/Enfuse source, which may be done as often as you'd like.

These instructions have been tested on OSX 10.4 and 10.5 on both x86 and PPC systems:

Satisfying Enblend Dependencies and other Prerequisites

Via Fink

1. Install dependencies:

fink install lcms lcms-shlibs boost1.33 libtiff libtiff-shlibs libxmi libxmi-shlibs libjpeg libjpeg-shlibs libpng libpng-shlibs

Click yes to all questions from Fink.

2. Modify the lcms header file:

sudo sed -i= 's/memory.h/\/usr\/include\/memory.h/' "/sw/include/lcms.h"

Via MacPorts

1. Install dependencies:

sudo port install make subversion lcms boost jpeg tiff libpng OpenEXR

Building Enblend/Enfuse from the Latest Source

3. Download enblend from cvs,

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous@enblend.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/enblend co -P enblend
cd enblend

4. Setup environment variables:

Via Fink

export CFLAGS='-I/sw/include -I/Developer/Headers/FlatCarbon'
export LDFLAGS=-L/sw/lib 
export ACLOCAL_FLAGS="-I /sw/share/aclocal" 
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="/sw/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig"

Via MacPorts

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/local/lib/pkgconfig
export CFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include -L/opt/local/lib"

5. Build and install enblend

make -f Makefile.cvs
./configure --with-apple-opengl-framework
sudo make install 

Enblend and Enfuse should now be installed in /usr/local/bin/ and ready to use; you may need to open a new terminal window in order for your shell to find the new binaries.


If you see errors during make -f Makefile.cvs similar to the following, add autoconf2.5 and automake in fink.

configure.in:22: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_DEFINE
      If this token and others are legitimate, please use m4_pattern_allow.
      See the Autoconf documentation.
configure.in:30: error: possibly undefined macro: AC_MSG_WARN
make: *** [all] Error 1

If the prereq step tries to pull in db44 and it fails to compile, grab the binary of boost instead using sudo apt-get install boost1.33

An alternative MacPorts build

On the following page you will find these instructions which can be used too to create enblend and enfuse.
