Install SCAMP

I received a new laptop that already had many things precompiled and installed, like SExtractor. The unix libraries are an ugly mix of macports in /sw/ and my own homebrew installations described as in some of the posts below. I had some trouble installing SCAMP from source, with similar FFTW errors that show up when trying to install SExtractor:

checking /usr/local/share/fftw-3.3.3/build-single/include/fftw3.h usability... yes
checking /usr/local/share/fftw-3.3.3/build-single/include/fftw3.h presence... yes
checking for /usr/local/share/fftw-3.3.3/build-single/include/fftw3.h... yes
checking for fftwf_execute in -lfftw3f... no
configure: error: FFTW single precision library files not found in /usr/local/share/fftw-3.3.3/build-single/! Exiting.

Build a sandboxed FFTW:

cd /usr/local/share
tar xzvf fftw-3.3.3.tar.gz
cd fftw-3.3.3
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/share/fftw-3.3.3/build-single --enable-float --enable-threads
make install


cd /usr/local/share
tar xzvf scamp-1.7.0.tar.gz
cd scamp-1.7.0./
configure --with-fftw=/usr/local/share/fftw-3.3.3/build-single/lib --with-fftw-incdir=/usr/local/share/fftw-3.3.3/build-single/include  --with-plplot=/sw/ --with-plplot-incdir=/sw/include/plplot/ --with-atlas=/sw/ --enable-threads --enable-static
make install
