seems to build fine, but "make install" fails.

os x 10.7.5
homebrew 0.9.4
asymptote 2.15

→ logs:

Does not work for me either.

Same problem here. I even installed MacTeX 2012 to see if this was the problem. No luck. I will try compiling from source.

Trying to update to 2.23, I'm getting texinfo.tex appears to be broken while building docs. I added the dep, MacPorts has this too, but that alone isn't letting texi2dvi work.


adamv commented May 25, 2013

Ah, I need to get it to use the bin from the keg-only texinfo instead of the Snow Leopard provided one.


adamv commented May 25, 2013

Updated from TexLive 2010 TexLive 2012, and it works with 2.23; will push an update.


adamv commented May 25, 2013

Updated to 2.23 in b1e2f00 and tested on Snow Leopard. There may still be install weirdness, but please open new issues for this. Thanks.
