I don't see Subversion listed on that site. However my guess would be that's a
really old version since Apple as far as I know is still shipping 1.7.x (or
1.6.x if you're on an older version of OS X).

So I'd suggest you get a copy of the source from the project site here:

Alternatively you could just get a binary package. I know for instance that
the WANdisco binaries include bindings:

If you still want to build anyway. Note that in order for SWIG bindings to
build properly on OS X you'll need to regenerate the swig interface source
files. We include pre-built ones but there's an issue where the pre-built ones
don't work on OS X. In order to do this you need to have SWIG installed,
autoconf and libtool. Once you've done that starting with a fresh extracted
tarball run:


From there you should be able to build with the normal build process like you
did here:

This error doesn't look familar to me. But I can say that I don't have an
empty -rpath with our 1.8.4 source.

In the source directory in the file named build-outputs.mk (which is included
part way through the Makefile). However, I'd suggest you not go down the dark
path of debugging the build without first trying a newer source package.

If nothing else you almost always want the newest version of the bindings since
we fix bugs in them on a regular basis.
