I have gettext installed via macports (a suggested installation method) and it is available though the command line, but the OSX installer says that it can not find it.
I installed gettext with brew which is by default keg-only so I had to run "brew link --force gettext" to make symlinks in /usr/local to make the installer find it. Maybe you have to do sth similar with macports.
I'm sorry about the inconvenience.
The python3.5 executable will look in the default install locations for homebrew and macports for the library libintl.8.dylib, which are /usr/local/lib and /opt/local/lib, respectively. If your gettext (specifically, libintl.8.dylib) is installed somewhere else, you can add a symlink to one of the default locations.
Yes, gettext is installed in the usual macports directory: /opt/local/bin
Also, libintl.8.dylib is in /opt/local/lib , but the installer still does not find it.
Thanks for the help.
I don't have time to play with software that breaks before it installs.
In order to use Intel® Distribution for Python* 3.5, you must have gettext installed.
I installed it gettext via MacPorts. Now I'm supposed to add links. Okay. Then what? What will break on step two?
I understand your frustration, and would like to let you know that we have removed the dependency on gettext, and the next release will no longer require it to be installed.
