Please ignore the .c extension on the Makefile. It's an artifact from when
I was trying to get it to upload in the forums, it was not there on build.

Just an idea: The guy who successfully built the FreeCAD sources had to
rerun in order to fix some libtool issues. Instead of using
libtoolize the tool glibtoolize is used which is called in

So, just run ./ Maybe you need some .m4 macros from 3rd party
libs like Coin and SoQt.

I have checked your Makefile which seems to be okay. The lib search path
/opt/local/lib is listed where your boost libs are installed. But the
search path doesn't appear when linking FreeCADBase. So, it could really be
a libtool issue.
