Did you try to install from pip / easy_install ? It should make things
slightly easier.

The list of dependencies to install pythran from source, as stated in


is the following:

    libboost-python-dev libgoogle-perftools-dev libgmp-dev libboost-dev
    git cmake
    python-ply python-networkx python-numpy

they might have a different  name on Mac OSX, but that's the idea. From
your error, my guess is that you're lacking git or cmake...

@mehdi: may be you could post the recipe you used to build pythran on
your macos? Update the doc accordingly?
