I've been trying to build Ardour3 on Mac OS X 10.7.4 and I'm running into
problems, so I was hoping you could give me some pointers since you've
managed to go through it.

I'm still at the stage of building the dependencies listed at
I've started with the modified versions of libraries, and I'm currently
stuck with gtk+.

Upon compiling gtkrelocation.c I get a long list of errors, in thousands
(excerpt below). It seems that the compiler ends up in objective-c headers
and can't deal with them because it's not compiling objective-c initially.

I understand the '-x objective-c' argument tells gcc it's should compile
objective-c, but shouldn't that be automatically added by the scripts? I
didn't find anything more than ./configure --enable-relocation && make &&
make install in the documentation.

I'm using the latest Xcode (4.6.1) and the compiler that shipped with it.
i686-apple-darwin11-llvm-gcc-4.2 (GCC) 4.2.1 (Based on Apple Inc. build
5658) (LLVM build 2336.11.00)

Did you encounter such a problem?

For the rest of the (non-modified) dependencies, I've found most of them on
Can I install them this way or is MacPorts absolutely forbidden?
