Thank you for this hint (I'm so new to this that I didn't realize  
that the config.log was sitting there.) This is very illuminating. I  
am using Mac Intel and it appears that libkpathsea.a is referencing a  
ppc.  Do I need another libkpathsea.a for the intel Mac? I just  
finished looking at the web and saw that this same type of error  
occurred on May 4 in a post by Joseph Slater.  I couldn't quite make  
out what the final outcome was. I will look into an update since I  
installed in March. Thanks again.
