Post How to install latest NTFS-3G on OS X?
I'd like to compile latest NTFS-3G 2015.3.14 for OS X (note: I got OS X 10.11 and Xcode 7).

So I tried:

./configure && make && sudo make install

But it told me `pkg-config` was not installed, so I installed it from http://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/pkg-config/ using `./configure --with-internal-glib; make; sudo make install` and I got:

[...]
Making install in .
./install-sh -c -d '/usr/local/bin'
/bin/sh ./libtool --mode=install /usr/bin/install -c pkg-config '/usr/local/bin'
libtool: install: /usr/bin/install -c pkg-config /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/usr/bin/make install-exec-hook
cd /usr/local/bin && ln pkg-config x86_64-apple-darwin15.0.0-pkg-config
ln: x86_64-apple-darwin15.0.0-pkg-config: File exists
make[3]: *** [install-exec-hook] Error 1
make[2]: *** [install-exec-am] Error 2
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1


I ignored it and I tried again to install NTFS-3G:

./configure && make && sudo make install

But this time I got:

[...]
/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/ranlib: file: /usr/local/lib/libntfs-3g.a(libntfs_3g_la-compat.o) has no symbols

fi
mv: rename //usr/local/lib/libntfs-3g.so* to //lib/libntfs-3g.so*: No such file or directory
make[3]: *** [install-exec-hook] Error 1
make[2]: *** [install-exec-am] Error 2
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

Then I tried:

./configure --exec-prefix=/ && make && sudo make install

But I got:

[...]
install: //bin/ntfsfix: Operation not permitted
make[2]: *** [install-binPROGRAMS] Error 71
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

Then I tried:

./configure --exec-prefix=/usr/local && make && sudo make install

But I got:

[...]
install: chmod 755 /sbin: Operation not permitted
ln -s -f /usr/local/sbin/mkntfs /sbin/mkfs.ntfs
ln: /sbin/mkfs.ntfs: Operation not permitted
make[3]: *** [install-exec-hook] Error 1
make[2]: *** [install-exec-am] Error 2
make[1]: *** [install-am] Error 2
make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

Hello,

What was in first message has theoretically been fixed on June 23 2015 on latest `edge` branch: https://sourceforge.net/p/ntfs-3g/ntfs-3g/ci/edge/tree/
Yet, I got another issue to compile it:
