It shouldn't affect the build (that would be a bug if so), but
it will affect the run-time behavior, pointing gretl to the
wrong location for the ui file.
By the way. I have experimented a bit and I am able to build with
dependencies provided from Homebrew except GTK+(version 2.24). For some
reason it does not work.
I've found it exceedingly tricky to build the full GTK stack
on OS X. The stack we provide uses quite old versions of the
libraries, but it all plays nicely together. I've tried
updating various bits of it and ended up with breakage.
One thing I'd like to try at some point is building GTK3 with
native quartz support (no X11). Last time I tried I got a big
mess, but I guess things have improved since then.
Personally, I am happy now as I can build CVS Gretl so the
following is just some thoughts for the future. Maybe it is
worth considering if Gretl could be build with all
dependencies from Homebrew and provide a brew recipe (they
are really simple) because then Mac user could get Gretl
just by writing "brew install gretl". Just a thought.
Worth looking into, I agree.
