cmake error "Could not find compiler set in environment variable CC:"


Hi all:
I am trying to compile source code on Mac 10.9 using gcc. However, the default compiler is clang, and I have successfully change the compiler to gcc. when I ran "$ gcc --version", I got the message of "gcc (MacPorts gcc48 4.8.2_0) 4.8.2". However, when I ran the command "cmake -DFETCH_BOOST=TRUE .." to compile source code in the "build" folder, I got the message of "Could not find compiler set in environment variable CC:". What should I do? I think the problem is that I install cmake first and then switch to the gcc compiler. In this case cmake will find clang first and then gcc?

Thanks for your help!

Is the operating system mac or linux? I would think that you are using osx because of the macports software. This is a linux forum but maybe someone that knows mac can help.

Sorry about that. I deem that this cross-platform forum. Thanks for your help!
