Hello GameDev

I'm having some issues building my dev environment for GTK+ in OSX 10.8. I have followed the instructions from https://wiki.gnome.org/GTK+/OSX/Building but when I get to the part where it says to run command:

jhbuild bootstrap

I get the following error everytime.

[ 40%] Built target LIBCURL
from /Users/[redacted]/gtk/source/cmake-2.8.9/Utilities/cmlibarchive/libarchive/archive_string.c:65:
/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/CarbonCore.framework/Headers/CarbonCore.h:176:32: error: CarbonCore/Folders.h: No such file or directory

[1] Rerun phase build
[2] Ignore error and continue to install
[3] Give up on module
[4] Start shell
[6] Go to phase "wipe directory and start over"
[7] Go to phase "configure"
[8] Go to phase "clean"
[9] Go to phase "distclean"

I have the latest version of XCode installed and made sure that my /Developer directory points to XCode.app/Contents/Directory. I have uninstalled MacPorts as suggested from their website. I have been troubleshooting myself the last couple days on/off and have nowhere else to turn to but you guys. I know it's probably a simple fix but I can't wrap my head around it.

Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

edit:

It looks as if I've found the problem... but I still don't know how to fix it. It's the same problem this guy was having in this thread: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5440300/gcc-include-path-and-symlinks/5440502#5440502. It looks like the compiler is able to see and begin processing CarbonCore.h (which is in the same dir as Folders.h).

/System/Library/Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/CarbonCore.framework/Headers/CarbonCore.h:176:32:
error: CarbonCore/Folders.h: No such file or directory


I tried going in and editing CarbonCore.h line 176 to but this doesn't work either. I have tried to make a symbolic link several different ways but it's not working. Anybody know what I can do to fix this?

#include <CarbonCore.framework/Folders.h>
