[GEM-dev] Does Gem makefile on OSX look for FTGL static libs? compiling Gem CVS on OSX from terminal

I only have the static libs installed on the machine:
ESMAC001:/usr/local/lib lpine$ find / -name "libftgl*" 2>/dev/null
If I recompile FTGL using Xcode, where do the libs get installed? With the
terminal build find them then? (I think not, and that they'll not be
installed but just compiled...)
Today is my last day at work so I'm hoping to get a fully functional gem
compiled so my replacement does not have to worry about this stuff.
