Error in source build - "unknown option: --rpath"


I am new to InfiniDB - the only column store engine in MySQL I am aware of. However, I get the following error in make:

libtool: link: g++ -dynamiclib -Wl,-undefined -Wl,dynamic_lookup -o .libs/libboost_idb.1.dylib .libs/libboost_idb_la-c_regex_traits.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-cpp_regex_traits.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-cregex.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-date_generators.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-error_code.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-exceptions.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-fileiter.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-greg_month.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-greg_weekday.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-gregorian_types.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-icu.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-instances.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-once.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-operations.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-path.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-portability.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-posix_api.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-posix_time_types.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-regex.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-regex_debug.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-regex_raw_buffer.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-regex_traits_defaults.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-static_mutex.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-thread.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-usinstances.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-utf8_codecvt_facet.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-w32_regex_traits.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-wc_regex_traits.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-wide_posix_api.o .libs/libboost_idb_la-winstances.o -Wl,--rpath -Wl,/usr/local/Calpont/lib -install_name /Users/alekh/mysql/Calpont/lib/libboost_idb.1.dylib -compatibility_version 2 -current_version 2.0 -Wl,-single_module

My system has Mac OS (Snow leopard) and before building InfiniDB I installed boost @1.42.0_0 using MacPorts.

Any ideas what the problem could be?

Re:Error in source build - "unknown option: --rpath"

Hey Alekh, thanks for downloading InfiniDB and checking us out.

Unfortunity at this time, we don't offically support building and running on a MAC OS.

We at Calpont haven't tried building on a MAC OS and I don't believe I have seen any users try. So you might be the first.

I wise we could help you out, but we don't have the working knowledge on the MAC OS system.
