This file describes the procedure to build and install Icarus Verilog on Mac OS X. I assume that you have experience with Unix and
1) Obtain and install a libdl compatibility library.
If you don't already have /usr/local/lib/libdl.{a,dylib} and /usr/local/include/dlfcn.h, you can obtain the source for a compatibility layer from at least one of two places:
Unpack this tar file and read the README and Makefile. Install the library according to the instructions. Installation in /usr/local is strongly recommended since otherwise autoconf very likely won't be able to find it.
2) Configure, build and install the Icarus Verilog sources.
The only change you need to make here is to use a configure command like:
% CC="cc -no-cpp-precomp" ./configure
This assumes you are using 'sh', 'zsh', or 'bash'. If you are using 'csh' or 'tcsh', then you'll want something like:
% setenv CC "cc -no-cpp-precomp"
% ./configure
You can, of course, add other configure options.
3) Done!
