[osg-users] Osgconv --formats broke on Mac OSX

I am generating Makefiles using CMake, and I have installed OSG.
The problem seems to be that osgDB expects plugins to have a ".dylib"
extension, when in fact they have a ".so" extension on my system (and no
they are not sym links). Eric, I'd be interested to know what you have on
your system.
Did the extension for OS X plugins change very recently? My build is a
couple weeks old now.

It works for me (latest svn). Did you "install" the OSG library? If you did
not, there is no way to get to the plugins, because Xcode inserts a "Debug"
or "Release" intermediate directory. This assumes you use the Xcode
generator for OSX. If you are using the Makefiles generator, or the old
pre-generated Xcode project, then I have no idea.

Is anyone else encountering this? "osgconv --formats" immediately returns to
the shell prompt. With OSG_NOTIFY_LEVEL set to DEBUG_INFO I see that it
finds the plugin directory, then pretty much just exits, as if there are no
plugins there.
Oddly, "osgconv --format flt" (and other extensions) works OK, and with the
notify output I see it finding the plugin immediately, followed by the
expected output relating to that plugin.
OSG 2.6.1 works OK. but svn head is broke as of at least late February
(that's when I took the snapshot for our OSG training in DC, and one of the
students there with a macbook encountered the issue). I haven't tried this
with 2.8.
