I reffered....

git clone git:// 
cd opencv 
git checkout 2.4 
mkdir build 
cd build 
make -j8

But make fail at "make -j8" step...

Linking CXX shared library ../../bin/libopencv_java244.dylib 
ld: unknown option: -whole-archive 
clang: error: linker command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see invocation) 
make[2]: *** [bin/libopencv_java244.dylib] Error 1 
make[1]: *** [modules/java/CMakeFiles/opencv_java.dir/all] Error 2 
make[1]: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs.... 
Linking CXX executable ../../bin/opencv_perf_gpu 
[ 89%] Built target opencv_perf_gpu 
make: *** [all] Error 2

How can I build it????

I was successful to install 2.4.4 on my mountain lion. Before building and installing anything, I've checked if I had gcc, g++, XCode Command Line Tools and CMake from

I just followed the same steps as you did and I was able to instal it :(

I had the same problem and using the above fixed it! It seemed to stop when it tried to build the dynamic libraries needed to run it but using the above cmake command instead allowed them to be built. Thanks!
