Building micro-manager 1.2 from SVN on MacOSX Leopard MacIntel. This is the complete sequence that I used to build on 10.5.2 on 2008-04-18. In principle you can just cd to an appropriate directory and run the script but I would recommend cut/paste into terminal chunk by chunk. Note that for libdc1394 (firewire cameras on macosx/linux and perhaps PC) I have provided both a build from SVN and a build from the current stable tarball (2.0.1).
Finally to build Micro-manager you will need an up to date gnu autotools. From my experience MacOS X Leopard works out of the box, but on Tiger you will need to update.
Some optional steps are included that will make you build run on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) as well (NS, 9/11/2008).
Here are download links for versions I have.
Once you are done, make quite sure that you are using the latest versions that you have installed:
autoconf --version libtool --version automake --version
Hope it works for you! Greg Jefferis <firstname.lastname@example.org>
