The problem is the isis-gdl package in the greenstone/packages directory...
it obviously wasn't written (or tested) with gcc version 3 or later,
which mac os x (and recent linux distributions use).

I've made some simple little changes (and tested them on gcc 2.95 and
gcc 3.3) to 3 files so that it compiles cleanly.

You can download the 3 files from:

which contains:

If you copy these over the 3 files with the same name in gsdl/packages/isis-gdl
then hopefully it should all compile ok.
