[zeromq-dev] Installing Zeromq on Mac OS

Hello there ,

I am a Java developer and I was trying to install the zeromq + Java
Bindings on my Mac OS dev machine.

I am finding this very frustrating that the instructions on the ZeroMq
website is completely insufficient for a Unix non-dev-ops developer like me
to quickly install and start coding with zeromq + java .  I find the need
to discover the intricacies of what autoconfig does ( and how to install
autoconfig at first place ) a step back rather than moving forward.

Most of the time I get errors in ./configure step ( both while installing
zeromq and the bindings ).  I gave up when the ./configure for the bindings
kept giving errors saying it cannot locate zmq.h file.


checking dynamic linker characteristics... darwin12.5.0 dyld

checking how to hardcode library paths into programs... immediate

checking zmq.h usability... no

checking zmq.h presence... no

checking for zmq.h... no

configure: error: cannot find zmq.h

I am a java developer and my interests lie in see the messaging stuff in
action - towards that aim - can I humbly request  the zeromq dev team to
help me get started by clear and complete ( a to z) instruction on how to
install and get working with this ?

This is a Mac  OS X 10.8.5 (12F45) box and I use Eclipse for Java dev work.
