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.
