Can't build from source, macOS, archive_write_pax_header?



i’m hitting this error on my mac (OS High Sierra) when trying to build from source. any ideas?

# it seems openBLAS completes fine. 
# changed nothing in

WARNING: If you plan to use the dynamic library libopenblas64_p-r0.2.20.dylib, you must run:

"make PREFIX=/your_installation_path/ install".

(or set PREFIX in Makefile.rule and run make install.
If you want to move the .dylib to a new location later, make sure you change
the internal name of the dylib with:

install_name_tool -id /new/absolute/path/to/libopenblas64_p-r0.2.20.dylib libopenblas64_p-r0.2.20.dylib

To install the library, you can run "make PREFIX=/path/to/your/installation install".

archive_write_pax_header: 'x' header failed?!  This can't happen.

Seems to have some solutions / workarounds.
