AUGUSTUS is a popular gene prediction tool. However, if you try to compile the latest version (2.5.5) on Mac OS 10.7 or 10.8, you will run into the following error (see http://ascii.io/a/1238).

ld: library not found for -lcrt0.o
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [augustus] Error 1

The cause of this error wasn't initially clear to me, especially since the makefile makes no reference to lcrt0.o. I spent quite a while searching, and eventually found this thread.

The offender is the -static flag in the makefile. If you comment this option out, AUGUSTUS will compile fine on Mac.

I like the concept of sharing small tidbits of information and the best content type that we had for it was tutorial. But your post motivated me to added a new content type called Tip to post a short small snippet of information. I also modified your post to be a Tip rather than Tutorial.

Thanks. The Google results I got for this problem weren't very helpful, so I knew it would be helpful to post something here. I'm glad we found its proper "place" here!
