Re: [gembud] Installing GEMPAK on Mac OS X Mountain Lion (10.8)

I have found that it is no longer necessary to build OpenMotif from source … 
the recent versions of MacPorts have included OpenMotif once again, and unlike 
in the past, the libraries included in the MacPorts install of OpenMotif do not 
cause problems when one loads NMAP2.  So give that a try , i.e. “sudo port 
install openmotif”.

However, the error you are seeing I suspect is due to Mt. Lion no longer 
providing an X  server.  Search for and install XQuartz, which is an open 
source (via MacForge) implementation of X Windows.  You will definitely need 
that in order to run any X-window application, such as GEMPAK and NMAP2.

I'm using the following instructions to build GEMPAK for Mac OS X:

I am getting an error building OpenMotif 2.3.3 (Step 3c):

Any ideas on how to get around this?
