I managed to install IPOPT successfully on my Apple computer. It took me 
quite a while to figure out how to do it properly. I got errors when I ran 
the configure script, so I had to bypass the default installation 
altogether. The main difficulty is due to the fact that the GNU Fortran 
compiler is not installed by default on Mac OS X, and after I installed 
it, it didn't behave as expected by the configure script.

I've detailed my steps at: http://www.cs.ubc.ca/~pcarbo/ipopt-macosx

Andreas, perhaps this webpage will help guide you in making the configure 
script compatible for Mac OS X?

(I'm running Mac OS X 19.3.9 on a PowerPC G4. Nonetheless, my instructions 
should for the most part pertain to your situation, Bruce.)
