Hi, I'm trying to use JPL with swi-prolog on Mac OS High sierra and I noticed that when I install it via homebrew, the libjpl.dylib is missing. However, when I download the same version (.dmg) from the swi-prolog website, the library is here.

ls /usr/local/Cellar/swi-prolog/7.6.4/libexec/lib/swipl-7.6.4/lib/x86_64-darwin17.3.0/

give me

cgi.dylib               json.dylib              porter_stem.dylib       sgml2pl.dylib           time.dylib
crypt.dylib             libedit4pl.dylib        process.dylib           sha4pl.dylib            turtle.dylib
crypto4pl.dylib         libswipl.a              prolog_stream.dylib     snowball.dylib          uid.dylib
double_metaphone.dylib  libswipl.dylib          protobufs.dylib         socket.dylib            unicode4pl.dylib
files.dylib             md54pl.dylib            rdf_db.dylib            ssl4pl.dylib            unix.dylib
hashstream.dylib        memfile.dylib           readline4pl.dylib       streaminfo.dylib        uri.dylib
http_stream.dylib       ntriples.dylib          readutil.dylib          syslog.dylib            websocket.dylib
isub.dylib              pdt_console.dylib       rlimit.dylib            table.dylib             zlib4pl.dylib

I also noticed there is a --with-jpl option but when I add this option the result is even worst, I get no libraries at all

ls /usr/local/Cellar/swi-prolog/7.6.4/libexec/lib/swipl-7.6.4/lib/x86_64-darwin17.7.0/
libswipl.a      libswipl.dylib

Any idea why ?

Thanks !
