Doxygen fails to build on Mac OS X "snow leopard"

Description (last modified by Olly Betts)

On Mac OS X "snow leopard", when running bootstrap, doxygen fails to build with an error "This version of Mac OS X is unsupported" (as noted in comment:3:ticket:396). Upgrading the version of doxygen used by bootstrap to 1.7.1 fixes the problem. We should probably upgrade therefore, though we need to check if any config updates are needed for this, and check that the generated output is still good.

Or we could add a line to bootstrap to fix this with a sed hammer on the doxygen source so we don't have to play this game for every new Mac OS X release. This check is in a header taken from Qt, and in the context of doxygen the results of this test aren't ever used (try rgrep MAC_OS_X_VERSION doxygen-1.5.9 - the only uses are in ./qtools/qglobal.h and the last one is the check that fails).

I want to release 1.2.3, so bumping. This is only relevant for building from SVN, so targetting it at a particular release doesn't really mean much anyway.

Should be fixed by r14922 (but untested as I don't have access to Mac OS X).

Can you test and close this ticket if it is fixed?

To force bootstrap to rebuild doxygen, you just need to do:

rm INST/doxygen.stamp

Reassigning to Richard, since he can actually test this!

Richard confirmed on IRC that doxygen now builds ok.
