Re: [gembud] GEMPAK for OS X 10.8 (Mountain Lion)

Hi, All,

Are there plans to release OSX binaries of GEMPAK that are standalone
(e.g., don't need macports and other dependencies installed)?

I ask because I use the package manager homebrew for other reasons, and
have had really bad problems trying to run both homebrew and macports.
 Alternatively, has anyone had success building GEMPAK from scratch using
homebrew dependencies instead of macports?
