Compiling help : Darwinports, FAAD2

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hi guys,

I'd like to install FAAD2, an AAC decoder library, and in order to do so I've installed and updated the ports for Darwinports which claims that all I have to do to install FAAD2 is "in a terminal window and while online, type the following and hit return:"

% sudo port install faad2


However, when I do this and plug in my password, I get this:

---> Configuring faad2

Error: Target returned: shell command "cd /opt/local/var/db/dports/build/_opt_local_var_db_dports_sources_rsync.rsync.darwi nports.org_dpupdate


work/faad2 && aclocal -I . && autoheader && glibtoolize --automake --copy" returned error 127

Command output: sh: line 1: autoheader: command not found

Error: /opt/local/bin/port: Status 1 encountered during processing.

If anyone has experience with Darwinports, please lend a hand.

This seemed like the easiest way to install FAAD2, but since it didn't work, I'm also asking if anyone has a 2nd-easiest way. I'm not a Terminal man, and I don't have Xcode or anything similar.
