For those having trouble compiling tripwire under 10.6
Authored by: klieb2002 on Feb 02, '10 01:36:00PM

For those of you having trouble under Snow Leopard, and for the gentleperson who pointed out that my link to download the source was pretty old (2004)... you may want to go to the standard Sourceforge web page for tripwire and get the latest copy of source there. It appears that Paul Herman's portable tripwire was merged into the tree starting at the 2.4.xx level, and from there it has been tweaked to work with gcc 4.0. Perhaps these tweaks will get you past the problem that you've reported here. (It doesn't appear that there have been any changes to the working code itself, just the install procedure, so if you got it to install you're essentially running the latest code).

It appears that if you download the latest source, which is tripwire-2.4.2.2-src as of this writing, it compiles just fine under Snow Leopard once you have done the sudo ./configure step. No fixup is necessary.

In a previous comment I noted the glitch regarding the local.key filename; that is still present in Snow Leopard. One other improvement I would suggest is to change the mandir parameter so that manual files are put directly into the directories where FreeBSD expects them:

sudo ./configure --prefix=/usr/local --sysconfdir=/private/etc/tripwire --mandir=/usr/share/man

Good luck!
