Mac Installation

Message Hi All. Thanks for FSVS it's great!! I use it to backup several linux servers. However, I'm working on a local project here on my mac and would like to get fsvs installed. It's a mac powerbook g4 running 10.4.11.

All is good until i go to "make". I've scoured internet and discussion groups to no avail. I'm going to run through what i did step by step:

1.) Downloaded fsvs-1.2.2.tar.gz from freshmeats

2.) Untar in /opt/src

3.) Used macports to install depy's (svn, apr, pcre, gdbm)

4.) I was getting errors w/ pcre and apr, so I had to setup the following symlinks and path vars:
sudo ln -s /opt/local/lib/libpcre.a /usr/local/lib
sudo ln -s /opt/local/include/pcre.h /usr/local/include
export LDFLAGS=-L/opt/local

5.) I ran sudo ./configure but got the warning about MAJOR(), MINOR(), and MAKEDEV() definitions not found.

6.) I ran sudo ./configure --enable-dev-fake and configured w/o error. (see attached "configure.out.txt")

7.) Now, when i try to "make", I get all kinds of errors. Simple stuff like files not being found. See attached file "make.output.txt"

So here I'm stuck. I've also tried:
sudo ./configure --prefix=/opt/local
sudo ./configure --with-svnlib=/opt/l​ocal/include

and a bunch of others, but still get simliar output. I must be missing something stupid like an environment variable right? Any help is GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks guys! If you help me out I'll gladly write up the "HOW TO - Mac Install".
