I believe that at some point gretl was part of the fink offering; this
was very early on, like version 1.5.0 or so. I don't know what the
present state if Fink is, but IMO the only long-term solution for OSX
support is to have one or more of the Fink guys maintain a gretl
package, like Dirk Eddelbuettel does for Debian.
Ah yes, 1.5.0 is even listed for os 10.5 (only non-binary, and it never
made it into stable, but still...). I'm installing it now, but this
takes a while, because all the dependencies have to be compiled (no
binary fink dist for 10.5 yet it seems).
Of course I agree a Mac fink maintainer would be great... Not me
however, I am not sure how long my current involvement with the Mac
platform will last.
Alternatively, someone suggested me to check out MacPorts
). Apparently, this is an OSX translation of
the "port" mechanism they use in BSD-land. One may conjecture that
with MacPorts installed, it could be possible to adapt the FreeBSD
gretl port (http://www.freebsd.org/cgi/cvsweb.cgi/ports/math/gretl/
But I'm talking about something I really have no clue on, so be
don't worry, I certainly won't fiddle with that...
