Re: Errors using 'make' on Sword engine
thanks for the reply. I did of course unpack the archive first into the /usr/share directory (after giving my non-root user permission to access the folder!) then using su in a terminal I did the ./configure and make;

I think (though I'm not positive) that's what the directions in the readme said for v1.6; but now that I look at the install file for v1.5.11 it's suggesting something different.

That's how I build the sword engine for MacSword. Actually I don't know whether this has changed from 1.5.11 to 1.6.0.

Under Quick start it says:
 If you have never installed sword before and/or are happy with a default
configuration, you may wish to type:

make install_config

So I did that, and got:
 sword.conf generated 

I think that's a good thing!?

Well, that maybe only installed or generated the sword.conf file. You can check the makefile and see exactly what it did.
Normally some utility programs (like "installmgr", "osis2mod", "xml2gbs", ...) are created in or copied to the prefix_path/bin when "make install" is executed. You might want to check if those are there.
