sorry for replying late, but the mass of mails on the Max list lets me
only read them in filtered bunches once a month. So everyone, for
flext-related question please either write to the flext mailing list, or
CC me in your mail to this list.

First, i’d like to say that it’s easiest to build your externals using
the flext build system… see build.txt in the flext distribution.
Otherwise you can easily use Xcode – it’s very straightforward.
1) build flext and install libraries and headers (sh build.sh max gcc
/ sudo sh build.sh max gcc install )
2) in your xcode project, specify an additional include directory so
that the flext header files are found (normally in /usr/local/flext) and
make a reference to the flavor of flext library you want to use
(static/dynamic, deployment/debug) or specify it directly as a linker
The next flext release will probably build to a framework.
