This SDK supports many platform/gcc-version configuration and they're placed under
lib directory. You need to choose correct set of libraries to build your application. For instance,
lib/darwin8-ppc/gcc-3.3/release is the library for gcc/g++3.3 to build applications for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger (darwin 8), PowerPC.
To build your application for the versions of OS X which are different from the current running one, you firstly setup the cross-development environment. For more information, see Apple Developer Connection - Cross-Development.
This library requires other prerequisite libraries and frameworks which will be install with OS X itself. The following is the list of those which this library depends on:
Fortunetelly these list can be used generally for all target versions of OS X.
Since this library contains some duplicated functions such as
wcscmp by some dependency issues, you may see some warning messages like the following one:
These warning can be ignored unless you disable two-level namespace by
-force_flat_namespace ld option.
You can also suppress these warning messages using
suppress ld flag. For more information see ld(1).
There're several C++ exception related issues with this library which may impact your code. See Special Version of Libraries for Exception Handling for more information.
