Hi Felix,

I am still running into issues. I have posted the complete build  
output here:


This was based on the following script:


  cd vlc-1.0.1
  cd extras/contrib

  cd ../..
  export CC=/Developer/usr/bin/llvm-gcc-4.2
  export CXX=/Developer/usr/bin/llvm-g++-4.2
  export OBJC=/Developer/usr/bin/llvm-gcc-4.2
  ./configure --enable-debug

  make VLC-release.app

I then tried the same, but uncommented 'make' and commented out 'make  
VLC-release.app'. This output is here:


In each case I started anew, first recreating the project dir.

In case it is my shell environment, 'export' gives:

declare -x HOME="/Users/ajmas"
declare -x LOGNAME="ajmas"
declare -x MAIL="/var/mail/ajmas"
declare -x MANPATH="/opt/local/share/man:/usr/share/man:/usr/local/ 
declare -x OLDPWD="/Users/ajmas"
declare -x PATH="/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/usr/bin:/bin:/usr/ 
declare -x PWD="/Library/WebServer/Documents/shared"
declare -x SHELL="/bin/bash"
declare -x SHLVL="1"
declare -x SSH_AUTH_SOCK="/tmp/ssh-mnQkIMIlWM/agent.7333"
declare -x SSH_CLIENT="2001:4978:15d:1:223:6cff:fe88:684f 54671 22"
declare -x SSH_CONNECTION="2001:4978:15d:1:223:6cff:fe88:684f 54671  
2001:4978:15d:1::1 22"
declare -x SSH_TTY="/dev/ttys000"
declare -x TERM="ansi"
declare -x USER="ajmas"

Any ideas?
