It's getting much further without setting any special environment variables but it now stops when trying to link rlm_idn complaining it cannot file -lidn when it is intact installed /usr/local/lib

-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  249804 Jul 16 11:14 /usr/local/lib/libidn.a
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel    1012 Jul 16 11:14 /usr/local/lib/
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel      12 Jul 16 11:14 /usr/local/lib/ ->
-rwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  217566 Jul 16 11:14 /usr/local/lib/

Output from ./configure specifying paths for rlm_idn …

The build fails here:

CC src/modules/rlm_idn/rlm_idn.c
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lidn
gmake: *** [build/lib/local/] Error 1

I'll do some more digging and see if I can resolve this.
