So I recompiled pmap 4.3.1 on Mac OSX 10.4.5 with Radiance 3R7P2. When I ran one of the "eggsamples" included with pmap (the "ring" example) I get the following output:

************

It appears that mkpmap runs, but rpict is not happy. I also ran the example script in the pmap "test" folder and got a similar fatal failure, this time at the "-apd" option on the rpict command line.

So, what seems to be the problem? is pmap not playing nice with Radiance upon recompile? Any other OSX users compile pmap? I am on PowerPC architecture, not Intel.

Hmmm.

Thanks folks!
