[Putting this up here so I can find it for future reference.]To build a GNU autoconf-based tool into a static library on Mac OS X:./configure –disable-shared –enable-static(add –prefix=/wherever/you/want to install in a non-standard location)sudo make install (You obviously don’t have to sudo if you’re installing into a directory your user has privileges for.)Note that SmartyPants is turning double-hyphens into em-dashes. Be careful if you copy and paste.This will build a static library for easy inclusion into interesting Xcode projects.
