  • You fix the problem by:
    • vi /sw/src/fink.build/dcmtk-3.5.4-1001/dcmtk-3.5.4/config/Makefile.def
      • change corresponding lines to:
CFLAGS = -O -I/app/sw/include/libxml2 -I/app/sw/include -D_REENTRANT -D_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED -D_BSD_SOURCE -D_BSD_COMPAT -D_OSF_SOURCE
CXXFLAGS = -O -I/app/sw/include/libxml2 -I/app/sw/include -D_REENTRANT -D_XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED -D_BSD_SOURCE -D_BSD_COMPAT -D_OSF_SOURCE
  • run cd /sw/src/fink.build/dcmtk-3.5.4-1001/dcmtk-3.5.4/; make all; make install, and it should work.
