The first test is 'make install' ... I am now at this phase (and in
this state it invokes pdftex which seems to be my default from TL '08,
which of course always crashes – need to update my ~/.MacOSX/
environment.plist for next try). Compiled with GCC-4.2 on PPC Leopard.
I'll try once more with LLVM-GCC-4.2!
Well, actually it's the "binary image" of /usr/local/texlive/2009/bin/
universal-darwin/latex which crashes while compiling the
documentation. 50 or 60 crashes have happened until now and my start
volume is getting overcrowded with core files!
Dick Koch compiled asy with Boehm Garbage Collector, gc, which is
compiled automatically once the configure script finds the gc-7.1
source archive in asy's source directory, GNU Scientific Library, gsl,
and readline support. I'll install Fink's libsigsegv2 (libsigsegv-2.6)
to recompile asy with its support. I've seen already that some files
were installed into TL '09! The configure found latex, pdftex, and
context before. In presumingly 20 hours I might be able to give you
some hints configuration and successful installation.
Experience is what you get when you don't get what you want.
