hi sara,

you need to get that .dylib on your machine alright...

the library has to be installed in /usr/local/libs/ - thats where it is 
on my machine anyway.

i can't remember where i got imagemagick - i was just looking on the 
website and it seems like the packages are about 5MB i seem to remember 
the package i downloaded was a lot bigger - i think 17MB and when i 
looked at the imagemagick folder i built from i see its contents are 
about 22MB - so where did i get it from???hmmm?? maybe i did an sudo 
apt-get install imagemagick -

maybe it was a binary.

imagemagick_5.5.6-2_darwin-powerpc.deb (i found this file  in my 
/sw/fink/10.2/unstable/main/binary-darwin-powerpc/graphics/ folder)

sorry to be so vague i just can't remember - i did a search on my 
computer found loads of different imagemagick tar.gz files from my 
various attempts!)

i remember somehow getting to an imagemagick folder 22MB in size then 
doing the ./ configure --enable-shared thingy.

i don't see why you cant save the .info file in fink with the 
--enable-shared flag.  i just changed mine and saved it, do you have 
write permission on all the folders in /sw/ ? find the location of the  
.info file and make sure you have write permissions on its folder and 
sorry to be so confused/confusing!
keep trying!
