Thanks for the tip. Indeed, the message complaining about imake  
disappears when you use:

./configure --x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/ 

However, then another message appears "No rule to make target `CPU'".  
It seems one needs to create a file config/site.def.<CPU> for the  
Mac, the only available such files being:


As I said, that's really too much for me. If one is supposed to go to  
that level of effort just to install software, then that's simply not  
worth it at all! I quit!

The above was direct compilation in Terminal, using ./configure and  
so forth, not MacPorts. Actually, regarding MacPorts, for  
"philosophical" objections I've reported here now and then, I'm not  
using PortAuthority and used instead the port command in Terminal.


(I won't be looking at email for some time today, I really need to  
get going.)
