APAcite on Mac OS X (Lion) with texlive

I had to recently rebuild my Mac Book Pro (gasp!), and decided to upgrade to Lion.  The whole process was relatively painless. Files were copied back from backups, and updated from my SVN repositories, however I had troubles installing the appropriate Mac port package for the APACite classes.

sudo port install texlive-bibtex-extra

The latter yielded errors, which were logged in


Since the dependency p5.12-text-bibtex could not be installed, examination of the log file provided the following clues; error: 'main' must return 'int'

The same error was reported for;

  1. /opt/local//var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_perl_p5-text-bibtex/p5.12-text-bibtex/work/Text-BibTeX-0.60/btparse/tests/namebug.c
  2. /opt/local//var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_perl_p5-text-bibtex/p5.12-text-bibtex/work/Text-BibTeX-0.60/btparse/tests/tex_test.c

A quick rename of void to int enabled the package to be installed without further issues.
