Thanks.  I have also just noticed the following in the instructions:

"Note, that only VLC's current development trunk can be compiled on
Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Any stable branch cannot, while the 0.8.6
series compiled on 10.4 Tiger works on Leopard as expected. "

Is this supposed to mean that the 0.9.x  source tarballs are not
supposed to be built on Leopard?

Anyway, I was finally able to complete the build with the source
obtained via git (and with the 0.9.6 downloaded source I can at least
configure successfully).  The key was realizing that rather than
./configure --enable-debug --with-macosx-sdk

, I was supposed to run:
./configure --enable-debug --with-macosx-sdk=/path/to/SDK

Now I hope I can link to the compiled libvlc and run the tutorial code
successfully... :-)

Kind regards,
