Yaml.h is missing / Failed to configure psych

I’m doing a fresh sandboxed install of Ruby 'n Rails 'n such. The
install is evidently having trouble finding yaml.h (or libyaml) and
building psych. I’m running OSX 10.6.8 (“Snow Leopard”)

Synopsis:

$ # SETTING UP THE ENVIRONMENT
$ SANDBOX=/Users/me/Developer/Sandbox
$ PATH=${SANDBOX}/usr/bin:${PATH}

$ # INSTALL A MODERN READLINE
$ cd …/readline-6.2
$ ./configure --prefix=$SANDBOX/usr

$ make install

$ make clean

$ # INSTALL YAML 0.1.4

Failed to configure psych. It will not be installed.

$ # TRY TO USE GEM
$ gem update --system
$SANDBOX/usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/yaml.rb:56:in `<top (required)>’:
It seems your ruby installation is missing psych (for YAML output).
To eliminate this warning, please install libyaml and reinstall your
ruby.

===============
Note that YAML did create and install libraries in the sandboxed
directory:

$ ls $SANDBOX/usr/lib
libhistory.6.2.dylib libreadline.6.2.dylib libruby-static.a
libyaml.la ruby
libhistory.6.dylib libreadline.6.dylib libyaml-0.2.dylib perl5
libhistory.a libreadline.a libyaml.a pkgconfig
libhistory.dylib libreadline.dylib libyaml.dylib python2.6

… but it appears that they weren’t found. I did note the following
message during the the YAML make process:

Libraries have been installed in:
/Users/r/Developer/Topaz/usr/lib

If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR’
flag during linking and do at least one of the following:

  • add LIBDIR to the `DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH’ environment variable
    during execution

See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.

… but IIRC you don’t want to mess with DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH on the Mac.

Any ideas?

You missed to tell Ruby’s configure to use the $SANDBOX/usr location.

./configure --prefix=$SANDBOX/usr --with-opt-dir=$SANDBOX/usr

Try again and let us know.

Any ideas?
In Unix or Linux the case may be needing to update ldconfig to tell the
system where the new place to search for libs is at. I am not familiar
with
Macs but that may be your issue. Check into how to run ldconfig on osX.

@luislavena: That was exactly the problem – thank you. I did the build
from scratch (without installing readline) and everything seems to work
okay.

SO TO RECAP: To build ruby-1.9.3-p0 under OS X 10.6.8, you need to load
and install yaml-0.1.4 and configure the ruby build to use the yaml
directory:

% SANDBOX=/Users/me/Developer/Sandbox
% PATH=${SANDBOX}/usr/bin:${PATH}

% # INSTALL YAML 0.1.4
% cd …/yaml-0.1.4
% ./configure --prefix=$SANDBOX/usr
% make install ; make clean

% # INSTALL RUBY
% cd …/ruby-1.9.3-p0
% ./configure --prefix=$SANDBOX/usr --with-opt-dir=$SANDBOX/usr
% make install ; make clean

% # UPDATE GEM
% gem update --system
