Please follow the instructions in INSTALL.UNIX to install FreeType on
Mac OS X.
Currently FreeType2 functions based on some deprecated Carbon APIs
return `FT_Err_Unimplemented_Feature' always, even if FreeType2 is
configured and built on the system that deprecated Carbon APIs are
available. To enable deprecated FreeType2 functions as far as
possible, replace `src/base/ftmac.c' by `builds/mac/ftmac.c'.
Starting with Mac OS X 10.5, gcc defaults the deployment target to
10.5. In previous versions of Mac OS X, this defaulted to 10.1. If
you want your built binaries to run only on 10.5, this change does not
concern you. If you want them to also run on older versions of Mac
OS X, then you must either set the MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET
environment variable or pass `-mmacosx-version-min' to gcc. You
should specify the oldest version of Mac OS you want the code to run
on. For example, if you use Bourne shell:
or, if you use C shell:
Alternatively, you could pass `-mmacosx-version-min=10.2' to gcc.
Here the number 10.2 is the lowest version that the built binaries can
run on. In the above cases, the built binaries will run on Mac OS X
10.2 and later, but _not_ earlier. If you want to run on earlier, you
have to set lower version, e.g., 10.0.
For classic Mac OS (Mac OS 7, 8, 9) please refer to builds/mac/README.
