I've been following your VPython adventures with interest, but am
pretty tied up right now (article draft overdue for IBM and a big
release coming at work). On OS X the 4.0 beta won't even finish
configure, much less build.
checking for GTK... configure: error: gtkglextmm 1.2, pangoft2,
glibmm-2.4, and pangomm-1.4 libglademm-2.4 are required on Unix-like
I've tried to get these installed via fink, but no luck so far.
Admittedly, I haven't put a lot of time into it yet, but I have taken
a few stabs.
If I can get it to build, I'd happily work on getting it working. I
get frustrated when I'm stuck in the configure stage.
