Just make .gettext after bootstrapping the contribs as indicated by the OSXCompile page. This isn't obvious and may be fixed at some point. However, it works then.

This library's code isn't cool at all. If you fix this one, you'll get another issue with a nested function in packet.c, which isn't supported by clang either. The authors admit this in a comment, but don't anything about it. No idea.

Fixed in the meantime. Works for me at least.

Fixed in the meantime.

Fixed in the meantime.

As mentioned in a previous mail, there are issues with libgcrypt:
These could be fixed this way:
1) CFLAGS="-std=gnu89 -fheinous-gnu-extensions"
2) add "--disable-asm" to the configure line (like for WIN64)
3) apply this patch: https://trac.macports.org/browser/trunk/dports/devel/libgcrypt/files/clang-asm.patch

All other libraries compile correctly for me using clang 3.0 :-)

Best regards,
