[Ipopt] Snow Leopard Matlab Compilation Problems

Hi Everyone,

I still having trouble compiling IPOPT on Mac OS-X Snow Leopard.  I am able
to compile the IPOPT library without errors, but I cannot compile the matlab
interface.  When I try to compile the mex file, I get the following error:

Undefined symbols:
  "std::basic_ostream<char, std::char_traits<char> >&
std::__ostream_insert<char, std::char_traits<char>
>(std::basic_ostream<char, std::char_traits<char> >&, char const*, long)",
referenced from:
PrintfImpl(Ipopt::EJournalCategory, Ipopt::EJournalLevel, char const*,
__va_list_tag*)in libipopt.a(IpJournalist.o)
Ipopt::EJournalLevel, char const*)in libipopt.a(IpJournalist.o)
ld: symbol(s) not found
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

    mex: link of ' "ipopt.mexmaci64"' failed.

I am using the following configure command:

./configure --prefix=$HOME/ipopt/install                        \
    ADD_CFLAGS="-fno-common -fexceptions -no-cpp-precomp -fPIC"   \
    ADD_CXXFLAGS="-fno-common -fexceptions -no-cpp-precomp -fPIC" \
    ADD_FFLAGS="-x f77-cpp-input -fPIC -fno-common"               \
    FLIBS="-lgfortran -lSystem"                                \
    F77=gfortran CC=gcc CXX=g++

All of this, by the way, works just fine in Mac OS-X 10.5 (Leopard).  It
seems to me that there is a problem linking to libstdc++, but I have no idea
why.  I have included the flag "-lstdc++" in the compilation, but that does
not seem to help.

Any help would be appreciated.
