I (and the xindy mailing list people) are still interested in reports  
on installing the source package at http://dev.atmarama.org/xindy-2.2- 
This package is intended to become the default install method for  
Xindy. The package works for me with:

download and unarchive:
	curl -O http://dev.atmarama.org/xindy-2.2-beta2.tar.gz
	tar -xzf xindy-2.2-beta2.tar.gz
	cd xindy-2.2-beta2
Sanity check:
	make check
	sudo make install

The defaults for the configure are sane (it uses the tree at /usr/ 
local). Make sure none of the CFLAGS, LDFLAGS, ...FLAGS environment  
variables are set, issuing "env | grep FLAG" should produce no  
output. Fink may or may not interfere with this installation, if it  
fails try again with /sw removed from the search path.

After that you can verify that the install works with this simple  
file "elementary.idx":


and call

     texindy elementary.idx

The resulting file elementary.ind must look like:


   \item test, 1


This elementary test file already uses all plugins, and produces  
quite some output to stderr.

Hope this helps. If this fails, please report back with OS version,  
type of machine (PPC/Intel), version of the compiler and developer  
tools version. You may need to download the 900+ MB developer tools  
update. Yes, that is quite a lot to download.
