newt-0.52.15: don't assume the SOEXT is .so
Last modified: 2013-08-06 12:31:05 EDT
The makefile assumes a _snackmodule.so target, which is not correct on Mac OSX. Why not use $(SOEXT) here?
I'm not familiar with building on OS X, but I'll be happy to include patches fixing the support.
Macports already has the proper patch
The Makefile now uses SOEXT instead of so and can be overridden on the commandline. I think the other changes in the patches from comment #2 need more work to be accepted, e.g. the linker flags shouldn't be changed on non-Darwin systems.
This is in newt-0.52.16.
