[vlc-devel] MacOSX Leopard compilation : fails on CMake

I'm trying to compile the source code on MacOSX Leopard.
I installed XCode 2.5.
Here what I'm doing :

	export PATH=/Xcode2.5/bin:/Xcode2.5/sbin:/Xcode2.5/usr/bin:/Xcode2.5/ 
	tar jxvf vlc-snapshot-20080310.tar.bz2
	cd vlc-0.9.0-git/extras/contrib
	make src

It fails on CMake.
(note that I've been trying to use CMake for another project on  
leopard and it failed the same...).

Any idea how to fix this ??
