Hello,
I can not compile mpc client on my mac (10.8), I've done the followinf steps:

1) download the libmpdclient (version 2.8) and compiled without apparent errors using "./configure" then "make" & "make install"

2) download the mpc version 0.23, run the ./configure but I've got this error message:
[...]

[...]

Please, can anyone tell me what the problem is?
Or better, can anyone give me an example of a very simple Makefile, so I can try to compile my example program ?

thanks in advance

M.

obviously you need to install libmpdclient (including its header files). just like the output told you...
