[Pcsclite-muscle] Compiling CCID driver on El Capitan

Hi everyone,

I am trying to get Nitrokey Pro working on El Capitan.

Initially I installed OpenSC 0.15.0 since that worked on Yosemite but looks like on El Capitan things are different.

I also have
$ /usr/local/sbin/pcscd -v
pcsc-lite version 1.8.14
Enabled features: MacOS x86_64-apple-darwin15.0.0 serial usb usbdropdir=/usr/local/lib/pcsc/drivers ipcdir=/var/run/pcscd configdir=/usr/local/etc/reader.conf.d

However, ps aux gives me this:

$ ps aux | grep pcscd | grep -v grep
root              141   0,0  0,0  2516572   3520   ??  Ss   12:49pm   0:00.02 /System/Library/Frameworks/PCSC.framework/Versions/A/XPCServices/com.apple.ctkpcscd.xpc/Contents/MacOS/com.apple.ctkpcscd

i.e. looks like Apple's pscsd is running? I can?t tell if there is an issue.

I got the CCID-1.4.21 source. ./bootstrap and ./configure went fine but then I got this error:

~/ccid-1.4.21$ make

clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation)
make[2]: *** [scardcontrol] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make: *** [all] Error 2

I have the dependencies installed via brew:
$ brew list
autoconf	automake	libtool		libusb		openssl		pkg-config

Any pointers will be appreciated!

I want to publish a step-by-step guide for Nitrokey with El Capitan after I get it running.

Best regards,
