On my first attempt compiling Radiance on OSX I received the following error.
Where do you want the library files [/usr/local/lib/ray]?
ls: lib: No such file or directory
d1: Subscript out of range.
Based on suggestions from list subscribers I attempted installs on 2 other OSX machines. Both failed with similar errors. See this link for full text of install, with errors:
The first machine: imac G4 800 mghz, 512 mb ram, 60Gb drive, OSX 10.2.6
The second machine mac Cube, G4 500mghz, 512 mb ram, 30Gb drive, OSX 10.2.6
The basic install sequence:
FINK not installed.
Installed developer tools from Apple.
Ran software update (nothing updated).
Installed x11 from Apple.
Downloaded radiance-HEAD.tgz and rad3R5supp.tar.gz.
In terminal (tcsh)
tar xzf radiance-HEAD.tgz
tar xzf rad3R5supp.tar.gz
both files unpacked into a single ray directory

Current rmake command is:
exec make "SPECIAL=ogl" \
"OPT=-O2 -DSPEED=200" \
"MACH=-DBSD -DNOSTEREO -Dfreebsd -I/usr/X11R6/include -L/usr/X11R6/lib" \
ARCH=PowerPC "COMPAT=bmalloc.o" \
CC=cc CONFIGURE_ARCH=powerpc "$@" -f Rmakefile
Do you want to change it? n
the shell spews text for several minutes, and I'm seeing lots of error messages
make: Target `install' not remade because of errors.
There were some errors.
./makeall clean (this cleans up stuff left by the install?)
rm -r bin
rm -r radbin
hum... doesn't look like FINK was the problem.
