Hi to all Mac Member
Recently i have purchase the Mac book.
Now i am trying to install the some software for which x11 lib file is require.
I have tried to install with DVD which came along with Notebook. I also tried to update the xcode3.dmg.

Would be helpful if we knew which lib file you're looking for?
There are several. Also what exactly are you trying to install?

I am trying to install the gamit software for GPS data processing and for that lib file in require. i am sending the path which gamit software is require.

#Specific for MacOSX
X11LIBPATH /usr/X11/lib
X11INCPATH /usr/X11/include/X11
once i am giving this path. The error occured in the gamit.
So i enquire to the concern person and he said that please check the lib file. becuase the error which is coming is due to only lib file.

Are you installing from source? You need to add the directories to your $PATH in your .bashrc file.

Code:
PATH=/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/X11R6/lib:/usr/X11R6/include:/usr/X11R6/man:$PATH
export PATH
What error messages are you getting?

Creating your own .bashrc file in your home folder is fine, that's what you're supposed to do.
After doing this, did you start your install from scratch? Or did you just run make again?
If you started from .configure again, looks like there's a coding error somewhere.
Those error messages aren't complaining about a missing lib, it's getting a different response than what it's expecting from what's in the code.
Is this code specifically for Macintosh? If not, it might need to be rewritten or a prefix used, for example:
.configure --cpu=PPC
or something similar. Read the README that came with the source for the specifics.
