  1. According to the INSTALL,
    “Mac OSX:
    Efforts are currently under way to ease compiling on OSX using the CMake
    method. It may be possible to compile Zint using methods similar to those
    given above, but this has not been thoroughly tested yet. If you have any
    success with compiling Zint on OSX then please get in touch. An install
    binary for OSX is also in development.

    So, this doesn’t really “work” on OSX yet.
