Building ZooKeeper on Mac OS X

http://zookeeper.apache.org links to https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/ZOOKEEPER/HowToContribute with minimal info on how to build it.

First try:

$ ant -Djavac.args="-Xlint -Xmaxwarns 1000" clean test tar

... and some 40 minutes later, during which time it was difficult to work on anything else because the tests kept stealing focus, Failure. Which one?

imbrium:logs wsmoak$ grep -r "Failures: 1" .
./TEST-org.apache.zookeeper.test.ClientPortBindTest.txt:Tests run: 1, Failures: 1, Errors: 0, Time elapsed: 30.69 sec
imbrium:logs wsmoak$ cat ./TEST-org.apache.zookeeper.test.ClientPortBindTest.txt 

So I left out the tests:

$ ant -Djavac.args="-Xlint -Xmaxwarns 1000" clean  tar

     [exec] aclocal: couldn't open directory `/usr/share/aclocal': No such file or directory
     [exec] autoreconf: aclocal failed with exit status: 1

/Users/wsmoak/projects/zookeeper/build.xml:1360: exec returned: 1

Total time: 1 minute 1 second

$ brew install autoconf
Warning: autoconf-2.69 already installed, it's just not linked

$ brew link autoconf
Linking /usr/local/Cellar/autoconf/2.69... 
Error: Could not symlink share/emacs/site-lisp/autoconf-mode.el
/usr/local/share/emacs/site-lisp is not writable.

What? I don't even use emacs... FINE

$ sudo chown -R wsmoak emacs
$ brew link autoconf
Linking /usr/local/Cellar/autoconf/2.69... 21 symlinks created

and then

$ brew install automake

build still fails. Maybe this?

$ brew install libtool
(Something about prepending 'g' to glibtool and glibtoolize) Nope, still getting:
aclocal: couldn't open directory `/usr/share/aclocal': No such file
I do have
$ find /usr -name aclocal
Maybe link it?
$ sudo ln -s /usr/local/share/aclocal /usr/share/aclocal 

Well, that got farther...

This has happened before: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-1454


$ export ACLOCAL_PATH=/opt/local/bin/aclocal

$ ant -Djavac.args="-Xlint -Xmaxwarns 1000" clean  tar
      [tar] Building tar: /Users/wsmoak/projects/zookeeper/build/zookeeper-3.6.0-SNAPSHOT.tar.gz



You might also run into problems with the docs if you don't have Forrest installed. See: ZooKeeperDocs
