Hi Marnix,

    Yes, several people have successfully compiled the Matlab interface on 
Mac OS X 10.6. It sounds like you are following the right steps.

    What version of Matlab are you using? This problem you are having 
sounds familiar... could you send me your output from running make and I 
could identify the problem more precisely?

    (Also, I would recommend copying the MatlabInterface folder from the 
"trunk" version of Ipopt, https://projects.coin-or.org/svn/Ipopt/trunk, 
since it contains an important bug fix.)
