Install Kent Source Archive Binaries


I need to convert several whole-genome files from .fasta files to .2bit as part of Brandt Faircloth's UCE pipeline.

In it, it is recommended that you use a program from the Kent Source Archive called faToTwoBit, found here: I can download the associated binary to my working directory using this line of code:

rsync:// ./*

...but when I try to run it, I get this error:

dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/opt/freetype/lib/libfreetype.6.dylib
  Referenced from: /Users/melospiza/bin/faToTwoBit
  Reason: image not found

From the error and the information on the page linked above, I assume this is a library issue, as three libraries (listed below) are apparently required to run the program.

  • /usr/lib/libc++.1.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current version
  • /usr/lib/libSystem.B.dylib (compatibility version 1.0.0, current
    version 1281.100.1)
  • /usr/lib/libiconv.2.dylib (compatibility version 7.0.0, current
    version 7.0.0)

However, I'm just not really sure how, or where to install those, or even to check my computer's set of libraries to see which ones I need. Any help you can offer would be greatly appreciated.
