I'd understood from the error he posted that they weren't being found.

Hard to say, but I duplicated the steps he went through and it went  
completely smoothly.  I'm running a completely up to date version of  
OS X on a duo core Macbook, so I'm not sure where he's getting the  
different results from.  I even patched and compiled exactly the same  
version using the same commands he did - no issues at all.
